About Us


About the Alliance

The work of the Alliance is carried out by its board and staff, in consultation with its partners and its national advisory board on early education. The Alliance's work is funded by grants and donations from foundations and from hundreds of individuals. We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, incorporated in the state of Maryland.


Mission Statement

The Alliance for Childhood promotes policies and practices that support children’s healthy development, love of learning, and joy in living. Our public education campaigns bring to light both the promise and the vulnerability of childhood. We act for the sake of the children themselves and for a more just, democratic, and ecologically responsible future. 

We encourage all visitors with an interest in our work to register with the Alliance. We'll keep you posted on our activities as well as issues of concern.
