The Farm to Preschool website is in part designed to function as a clearinghouse of resources from programs around the country and as a means to network with existing and emerging efforts. If you are part of an active farm to preschool-type program, and have materials you would like to share with a larger audience through this website, please contact us.

Farm to Preschool, a growing national movement and representative of hundreds of programs across the country, has been gaining momentum in the media and through national initiatives. Farm to Preschool, which serves all types of child care, is visible via Let’s Move Child Care, the First Lady’s national initiative, which highlights Farm to Preschool programs receiving Recognition Awards (California) as well as promoting successful program stories (Texas). Statewide Farm to Preschool summits (Georgia) have recently made the news, as well as many other programs profiled in regional newspapers (Hawaii). Keep up the great work and send us your news and other newsworthy stories!
