What’s Possible When Child Care Is Funded As a Public Good

  • Early childhood education would be a well-paid, well-respected profession, one that was accompanied with professional support and opportunities for meaningful, ongoing learning.
  • Families and child care providers could have a meaningful voice in shaping their experiences.
  • Local communities could provide universal access to care and wraparound supports tailored to the specific needs of their families for easy and equitable access.
  • A national family policy could ensure all federal agencies commit to every family’s well-being, coordinating systems across agency silos.
