CentroNía is proud partner of the Birth-to-Three Policy Alliance, founded by the Bainum Family Foundation, alongside the region’s leading children’s policymakers, advocates, and service providers. Together, we are working to advance policy changes that improve early childhood education. This includes increasing access to quality, comprehensive early childhood services and other supports for infants, toddlers, their families in D.C., and ensuring that health, education, early learning, and human services systems work in coordination to improve outcomes for young children.

“We are partnering with organizations that understand how the first few years shape a child’s life and that share our commitment to achieving meaningful policy reforms and service improvements for D.C.’s most vulnerable children,” said Rozita Green, Chief Strategy Officer at the Bainum Family Foundation. “We’re committed to leading this effort, and we believe the District’s success in expanding health care and pre-K shows D.C. can improve the odds for infants and toddlers, if policymakers make them a priority.”

“Finding high-quality, affordable child care is still a challenge for many low-income families. CentroNía advocates for quality early childhood education and wrap-around services that help infants, toddlers and their families succeed,” said Myrna Peralta, CentroNía President and CEO. “We are proud to be a member of this alliance and work alongside our partners to improve access and quality for ALL young children and their families.”
