To meet the needs of the present, and prepare for a stronger and more equitable future, our nation’s leaders must make the investments that help all our families access opportunities to thrive.
We must prioritize the early childhood professionals who, through their complex and critical work, are supporting our nation’s economy while caring for and educating the next generation.
We call on Congress to continue to make progress towards the necessary, significant, and sustained investments in quality child care and early learning that respond to our communities’ short- and long-term needs, and support America’s economy, families’ economic security, and children’s success.
