Neighborhood Villages is on the frontlines, advocating for real, systems-level policy change that would make affordable, high-quality child care a reality for families in communities across America.
In the United States, families need greater access to affordable child care and they need it now. Affordability must go hand-in-hand with quality and families should not be forced to choose between the two. We are uniting with the business community, advocacy organizations, the public sector, and child care providers to fight for a public child care program that would support the needs of today’s workforce and set children and families up to thrive.

Neighborhood Villages is committed to demonstration of best practice. We translate policy into practice by designing best-in-class child care delivery models.
In partnership with community-based and academic institutions, we have cultivated a school design model that takes a two-generation approach to delivering affordable, high-quality child care that begins at birth. The Neighborhood Village School model is highly integrated with the health and other social sectors, curated to serve the whole child, and designed to reflect the lived reality of today’s modern family.
