Governor Gavin Newsom highlighted on Thursday his historic investment in early childhood education of over $2 billion in this year’s budget, and his Gavin Newsom official photocommitment to creating and implementing a master plan for early education to ensure that all children in California have the critical foundation they need for healthy development and learning in the earliest years. The $2 billion down payment immediately expands California children’s access to quality education and health care, funds a two-generation strategy that invests in parents so they can invest in their children, and eases some of the financial pressures on parents to help them provide opportunities for their children and achieve economic security for their families.

“Investing in our youngest Californians is the best investment we can make, and I made a commitment to support the youngest Californians and their parents so that they can get a quality education, good health care, and other things they need to have successful lives,” said Governor Newsom.
