Throughout this pandemic, many of us have said that we can’t go back to the child care system we had. But what will it take to build something that truly serves children, families, providers, educators, and our economy with equity and quality at its core? Earlier this fall, the Alliance for Early Success and its state and national partners released the Build Stronger Child Care Policy Roadmap that can serve as one pathway to that stronger, more ambitious future. This webinar will cover the key areas of work that this roadmap proposes as our field’s collective agenda for the coming years. We will also discuss ways that educators and providers can get involved in the policy and advocacy efforts to build back stronger.
To make the kind of social and systems change needed to rebuild child care will require building power at the grassroots level for child care. The Raising Child Care Fund is a project of the Early Childhood Funders Collaborative to support groups to organize at the grassroots level for equitable access to high-quality child care. The RCCF launched in 2018 and now supports grantees in 12 states. They work to lift parent, child care teacher, home-based child care provider, caregiver and ally voices and increase their participation in crafting policy solutions in states and/or communities.
- Learn and react to the key areas of work identified by the Build Stronger Child Care Policy Roadmap.
- Learn about resources and examples of ongoing work that can help states and communities move toward a stronger, more ambitious future.
