One thing we know for sure– during these uncertain times, making child care a priority for the presidential candidates will be a challenge. We know the candidates have a lot to consider right now, but we need to continue make our voices heard about accessible and high quality child care. After all, parents can’t work without child care, and our economy can’t recover without working parents. Now is the time to learn more about the presidential candidate’s positions on children and child care. Both have posted information about their positions. http://www.naccrra.org/policy/every_child_matters/candidate_positions.php
Counting down to the election
Because many Day Nursery parents and staff members lead hectic lives, last week we arranged to make one thing easier for them. Volunteers visited four of our centers to register people to vote. Twenty new voters were signed up during this time.
The National Association of Child Care Resource and Referral agencies (NACCRRA) sent out an email last week asking parents how much they know about the candidate’s position on major children’s issues and urging parents to speak out up on these issues. Here is an excerpt from their email and a link to their positions.
