Parents of young kids can’t go back to work if we don’t save child care.
Having quality and affordable child care was difficult before the pandemic, and now it will be nearly impossible as many providers are being forced to shut their doors. According to NAEYC, 40 percent of child care providers will shut down permanently if they don’t receive help.
Only $3.5 billion has been allocated to help child care providers in previous COVID relief packages. We need at least $50 billion to help providers keep their doors open and prevent a collapse of the childcare system.
Will you sign this petition calling on Congress to rescue the child care system before even more centers are forced to shut their doors?
