Bipartisan Policy Center’s (BPC) new video, Rethinking America’s Child Care System, explores a surprising solution for businesses and families. COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on America’s child care industry, but these challenges have been prominent since before the pandemic.
Child care providers are encouraged to look at accessing the COVID vaccine given their work on the front lines of child care.
In this report, you will see the remarkable work that child care providers have done to give children the stability and certainty they need during a time when instability controlled every aspect of our lives. You will also see the efforts of our great CCSA staff to continue their work with children, families and child care programs through this unprecedented time.
For Teacher Appreciation Week, we must provide early educators the gift that keeps on giving, access to higher education and appropriate compensation!
Tomorrow is Worthy Wages Day, but it’s long past time for early educators to earn the professional compensation and benefits they deserve.
While the WAGE$ program has helped many educators like Mozella in a time of need, if educators continue to receive low wages, there won’t be any left, pandemic or not.
We, CCSA’s Board of Directors, are writing at this time to convey our concerns about SB570, the Hold Harmless Star Ratings bill.
Children Need Access to High-Quality Child Care and Teacher Education & Training from Birth to Third Grade
There is a direct relationship between the education of the early childhood workforce and the ability to support and promote healthy child development, which includes all of the building blocks for later learning-to-read readiness. North Carolinian children need teachers with early childhood education to help them learn. Just say no to SB570.
“WAGE$ helps me hire qualified staff because it does put them on par with other educators. Public schools don’t want to lose teachers every four months, so why should child care?” said child care director Catherine Lieberman.
