Taking action for kids begins with voting on November 6, 2018. Then it’s time to prepare for Washington’s 2019 legislative session.
This is a critical time for child care and early learning.
- Compensation is too low: With child care educators earning less than dog groomers and a lead teacher turnover rate of 40%, compensation is a major issue.
- There’s not enough access: Just 44% of Washington’s children needing child care can access it.
- Families can’t afford quality care: Child care is more expensive than college tuition and public infant reimbursement rates cover only 10-20% of the market.
You can make a difference on these issues by advocating for better policies and funding. Learn how at an upcoming Advocacy Convening, co-hosted by Child Care Aware of Washington and the Child Care Action Council.
