Early Childhood Alliance

Every child deserves an equal opportunity to a quality educational foundation that will prepare them to grow, learn, and succeed.


Convening Leaders in Early Childhood to Meet the Needs of Our Community.

Park City Community Foundation's Early Childhood Alliance is made up of organizations and individuals to engage, educate, and support members, children, parents, and the community. We advocate for high-quality, affordable childcare, provide grants, and support other local efforts. Our goals are to:

  • Ensure every child is kindergarten-ready
  • Advocate for sustainable funding of early childhood organizations, services, and systems
  • Convene, educate, and collaborate with key cross-sector stakeholders

Why Early Childhood?

Simply put, there is an immense need in our community and countless benefits when we invest in young children. Early childhood care and education facilitates the growth and development of young children, allows parents the opportunity to engage more actively in the workforce, and supports a thriving local community.
