About #WithinReach

The campaign to put high-quality child care and pre-k
within reach for working families

#WithinReach is the campaign to put high-quality child care and pre-k within reach for working families. The campaign will create momentum and elevate the need for a national public solution for child care and pre-k as a major priority in the 2016 election through public education, strategic messaging, and advocacy resources for national and state-based partners.

The #WithinReach campaign unites national and state leaders, advocates, and the general public in a coordinated effort to make real progress on policies that will advance economic opportunities and support for working families, and ensure the youngest Americans are equipped with the foundation they need to succeed in the future.

The Challenge

High-quality early education prepares children for school, gives families a fair shot to make ends meet and get ahead, and strengthens our economy. A strong economy starts with strong families. But low-quality and skyrocketing costs are putting child care and pre-k out of reach for millions of hard-working Americans, forcing many families to choose between their paycheck and their child’s care. An overwhelming majority of Americans agree—it’s time to put high-quality child care and pre-k within reach for working families.
