Right from the Start

RFTSlogoThe Right from the Start Coalition

MaineAEYC is on the leadership team of this exciting early childhood initiative…
We are working to build a broad coalition to reflect widespread support for educating the public and policy makers and guiding legislative and administrative action on matters pertaining to early care and education for ages 0-8. The Coalition seeks to ensure access to high quality programming for children and families and to develop and advance the profession for educators.

The Leadership Team includes a core set of founding organizations whose role is to articulate and advance the Coalition’s vision, mission, guiding principles and goals, and to oversee and coordinate the Coalition’s functioning. Founding organizations include Maine Children’s Alliance, Council for a Strong America (including Fight Crime: Invest In Kids, ReadyNation and Mission: Readiness), Maine Association for the Education of Young Children, Maine Community Action Association and the Maine Head Start Directors Association.

More information will be coming, along with ways you can be involved this year!
