Congress needs to #SaveChildCare—and they need to hear from you! So while we know you’re heroically juggling multiple jobs at home and in your early childhood education programs, we urge you to take just one minute to remind your Senators and Representatives that they need to do their jobs, too.
The urgent child care crisis that parents and providers are facing hasn’t gone away, and it isn’t going to vanish on its own. In fact, it’s going to get worse. With enrollment declining and costs surging, more programs will have to close their doors for good if the help they need doesn’t come.
Our nation’s families, children, educators, child care programs, and businesses need $50 billion in substantial, targeted relief funds to stabilize child care, and they need it now.
Our partners at NAEYC have provided this Advocacy Action Center, which makes it very easy for you, your friends, and colleagues to email Congress and tell them to invest $50 billion to help Save Child Care. Please click on the link and send your message.
