The Child Care Services Association and its T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® National Center applauds the passage in the U.S. House of Representatives of the Build Back Better legislation.
In this annual report, you will see the remarkable work child care providers have done to give children the stability and certainty they need during a time when instability still controls 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 as we see through this pandemic.
Today the White House released the framework of the Build Back Better, a historic set of policies and investments in children and families. Child Care Services Association and its T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® National Center applauds the framework released today that puts children’s and families’ health, economic security, and child care and preschool at the center of our national investments, reaping benefits for all of us. We call on Congress to get to the finish line and put this important legislation on the President’s desk as soon as possible as we continue to push for paid leave, a necessary component of child and family well-being. We urge states to apply for both the new child care and preschool programs that together build a better system of early learning. Children and families have waited long enough; let’s get to work to make the better future start now.
