Now’s our chance – President Trump spoke about child care and maternity leave in his agenda when he was a candidate for President, and now that he’s in office we want to make sure he keeps that promise.
While we don’t yet know the details of any of the proposals being considered by Congress or the Trump Administration, we do know that if we want to make any progress on this front we need to act fast!
Quality, affordable child care for families shouldn’t just be a pipedream or a luxury only a few can afford. Yet middle class families are being priced out of the child care market every single day and forced to put their children into tentative or unsafe child care situations in order to make due. In fact, the cost of child care is the single highest household expense for most families in the U.S., and the cost of child care for just one infant is more than a year of in-state college tuition.
If you believe that all families in the United States deserve high-quality, affordable child care, add your name and join the fight.
The first 100 days of the Trump Administration are going to move fast, and the list of important policy items will be long. Let’s make sure early childhood education remains a top priority for the new White House and for Congress.
Join the fight for the First 100 Days! We need you to stand up for children and families.
