Naples Alliance for Children joins communities across the nation to increase awareness of the low wages earned by early childhood educators, and the damaging effects low wages has on young children.

The most crucial component of high quality early childhood care is the skill and continuity of the caregivers and teachers who work with the children.  Due to low wages associated with this profession, turnover rate is significant.

Children attending early learning programs today will decide the future of our community.
