Put Child Care on the Map!
You know how important it is for families to have access to good, reliable, high-quality child care. You know that child care is early learning, and also a crucial support for working parents. ECEC and our national partners are working to put child care on the map.
We have a lot of ground to cover this year to make sure that every Member of Congress hears about child care in their community: everything from the early learning opportunities to the employers who count on staff to com every day; from subsidy assistance to tax credits to dollars to improve quality. They need to hear about the good things happening for young children in the classroom, and they need to hear about the waiting lists and families turned away. They need to hear from providers like you who know first-hand that child care matters.
Congress has adjourned and that means they’re in their home states and districts through the election on November 6. This is a great time to put child care on the map!
And after you’ve put child care on the map for your member of Congress, put it on our map!
Tell us how you put child care on the map for your Senators and Representative, and we’ll post it on this map to highlight the efforts going on around the country.
