November 19 is The Movement’s biggest fundraising day and the only day your donation of $25 up to $10,000 will be partially matched by local funders and sponsors.

Our advocacy moved the state significantly toward higher-quality pre-K (including $10 million added to the VPK budget).

What does The Children’s Movement of Florida do?

We advocate for and raise awareness about the importance of early childhood in Florida.

What We Believe:

The Children’s Movement of Florida believes that the well-being and education of our children in Florida must be the highest priority of government, business, non-profit institutions and families. The economic future of our state and the stability of the communities we live in depend on achieving this goal. The major objective of the citizen-led, non-partisan Children’s Movement of Florida is to inform the political, business and civic leaders, and the parents and people of this state, about this issue – and encourage them to make the well-being and education of our children our highest priority, including in the way we invest our public resources.

How We Make Change:

Our advocacy and awareness work focuses on three pillars of early childhood. We achieve impact at the local level by educating and empowering Floridians on the importance of the early years, and at the state level by encouraging elected officials to think of children when they vote for systems-level change.
