COME FOR THE CAUSE AND STAY FOR THE FUN

he New Haven Family Stroll & Festival brings the community together for a day of family fun while increasing awareness and raising much needed funds for high-quality early childhood education.* The event kicks off with a drum-led stroll along the Quinnipiac River bridge loop. Back in the park, activities and entertainment include food trucks, face painting, parachute play, magicians, musicians, Zumba, bubbles, arts and crafts, and information, and information from over 40 resource partners.

Will you help support the youngest members of our community? Join us at the New Haven Family Stroll & Festival to help us bridge the huge funding gap in high-quality early childhood education!

*Did you know Connecticut families are paying more for childcare than they are for housing? These childcare fees are well above the 7% household income cap recommended by economists and supported by Connecticut voters.

*Did you know Connecticut early childhood educators are making an average of $29,000 per year, which is an unsustainable income level and significantly below current public school salaries?

Programs have to charge families more, pay teachers less OR we can come together as a community and show our support for early childhood education at the New Haven Family Stroll!
