About Let’s Grow Kids

Let’s Grow Kids (LGK) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to ensure affordable access to high-quality child care for all Vermont families by 2025. 

To accomplish this goal, LGK combines child care quality improvement and capacity building with public awareness of, and political will-building for, affordable access to high-quality child care. We nurture partnerships and support community-informed collaborations. We believe philanthropy can catalyze a movement and leverage public investment to address this large-scale social challenge, and we have effectively employed these strategies at the local level community-by-community to achieve statewide results. Our vision is that Vermont is the best place to be a child, to raise a family, to make a living and to build community, because Vermont invests in its kids. 

Our culture is guided by these core values:

  • Commitment to Children: We believe that investing in the wellbeing of children birth to five is a catalyst for positive social change. 
  • Inclusion: We are building an organization, movement and system that promote equity and diversity.
  • Collaboration: We support each other and our partners to realize shared success.
  • Agility: We adapt readily to our environment to ensure we're in the best position to achieve our goals.
  • Strategy: We take a focused, coordinated, data-driven approach to achieving our goals.
  • Transparency: We are intentional about sharing clear and timely information about our work, priorities, mission, and values.

Our Commitment to Anti-Racism

We commit our organization, our movement, and ourselves to being anti-racist in all aspects of our work, to use our platform to raise Black voices, and to create an equitable early care and education system that advances racial justice for the next generation of Vermonters. We commit to listen actively, to learn openly, and to examine and question our privilege and tolerance of systemic racism, in order to disrupt structures of oppression.
