We are excited to announce that PMKF has resumed its role as a leading advocacy coalition dedicated to increasing the quality of our early education and care system to realize the best outcome for children. Our advocacy is anchored in the fact that a consistent, high skilled and well paid workforce is the foundation of a quality system. We are thrilled to have the continued leadership of former State Representative Marie St. Fleur as our spokesperson. – Stay tuned for a save the date notice for our next convening. Join Put MA Kids First!

A renewed commitment is needed to put our youngest children on the right track. Strengthening community-based early education and care should be an integral part of the Commonwealth’s long-term plan to invest in human capital to support growth and quality goals. While pre-school is a critical element of a child’s educational continuum, that continuum begins long before pre-K. Research has proven that children begin learning at birth.  It’s time community-based early education and out-of-school programs are recognized as essential elements of the education system.

We are Put Massachusetts Kids First



We are a broad-based coalition of more than 78 organizations across the Commonwealth focused on improving outcomes for children by stabilizing and strengthening the early education and care workforce.

Join us in telling Governor Baker and the legislature that our youngest children matter. We must commit to our future from the very beginning.
