Child care programs have always operated on razor-thin margins to provide the highest quality care for kids, while keeping tuition costs as affordable as possible for parents. For many providers, whether they temporarily closed or stayed open to provide care for essential workers, the past three months have dealt programs a substantial financial blow. At a time when children are in greatest need of consistent and nurturing caregiving that our high-quality child care programs provide—and parents are in desperate need of safe options as they return to work—Ohio cannot afford a loss of child care supply.
Contact your members of Congress today and encourage them to support $50 billion in flexible, dedicated funding for child care!
