The Value of Community CareBuilding bright futures together.

Rooted in Purpose

The value of early education, especially in a center-based setting, cannot be overstated.

However, it goes much deeper than learning. We’re committed to all aspects of children’s development and wellness—because their cognitive growth and educational success are as significant as their social-emotional development, which is greatly enhanced by a strong sense of community. Especially in times of uncertainty, we provide stability, routine, and peace of mind. It’s all part of our ongoing commitment to keep kids safe, healthy, and learning.

Centers Offer Strong Starts

“We found that center-based care is superior to home-based care for many children.” 
-- Luke W. Miratrix, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Education, Harvard University

An article by Jill Anderson in Harvard Ed. Magazine summarized the findings of research by a team of experts from the University of California, Berkeley, Abt Associates, Harvard University, and the University of Pittsburgh and found the answer to whether improved access to center-based preschool is effective was a resounding Yes.

“These results suggest that getting kids into center-based care is a good idea,” says Harvard’s Miratrix, one of the study’s primary researchers.

Collaborating with Policymakers

Additionally, LCG actively works with Congress, governors, and state legislatures to expand programs that help families afford quality care and develop high-quality Pre-K programs available through community-based centers.

One successful outreach program kicked off in 2021 and saw LCG proudly partner with the White House to make it as easy as possible for Americans to get vaccinated. To aid in pandemic recovery, we offered complimentary child care to parents on the day that they get vaccinated or boosted, and for up to two days following vaccination for recovery from common side effects.
