The Texas Early Childhood Education Coalition (TECEC) began
in 2003 as a volunteer-led coalition and grew to include 6,000 member
individuals and organizations dedicated to building a system of high
quality early education in Texas. In April 2012, TECEC dissolved as a nonprofit, and its members and functions were transferred to Texans Care for Children. Now called the Texas Early Education Alliance, this network continues to ensure that quality early environments exist for the children of Texas. To date, efforts have resulted in the passage of 30 pieces of legislation and the securing of $125 million for early education.
