When we looked at the results of our recent survey, we heard many of you tell us that it feels like no one is paying attention to the struggles child care providers face every day. We wanted to share some of the news from across our state
and across the country
that highlights the critical work and the painful realities of operating (or choosing to close) a child care program in the current crisis.
We hope that this will give you some small reassurance that there are people who care, who are listening, and who are doing their best to make things right. Recognition of your hardships may not feel like much to celebrate, but the more we can make our communities aware of the importance of our work, the stronger our advocacy voice becomes.
