Background Statement

Why We Do It

ELV believes all children deserve high quality care during the most vital time of their brain development. Since 2009, we have built peer communities, shared resources, provided technology solutions, and offered individualized support to child care providers and the families they serve. Since the COVID pandemic, the need is greater than ever.

“Science shows that early childhood experiences are critical in shaping lifelong outcomes. If we want a healthy society, we must support families and ensure the programs they need to access in order to work are the highest quality possible.”– Sue Renner, ELV Board member
