A Message from Governor Mike DeWine
As a father of eight children and 24 grandchildren, I have been able to see firsthand just how important it is to set kids up on a path for a successful future. I've spent my entire career advocating for Ohio's children and families. Our children are the future of our state, and we have a moral and economic imperative to do everything we can to give them the best possible start in life. We only have one shot to get it right. There is no dress rehearsal. That is why I created the Governor's Children's Initiative -- to align and enhance programs that help children arrive at kindergarten with the knowledge and skills to succeed in school and beyond.
