The child-care industry—essential to American families and to the American economy—is at risk of complete collapse. Before COVID-19 struck, the child-care industry faced funding issues and staffing dilemmas, while families struggled to find—or simply afford—quality child care. The reality is that COVID-19 has only exacerbated the challenges of the already fragile child-care ecosystem. This recorded edWebinar takes a hard look at the current state of the industry and explores how to save this critical service by:

  • Identifying the systemic changes needed
  • Altering public opinion of the field
  • Securing state and federal dollars for the private sector
  • Prioritizing the growth of family child-care homes
  • Educating parents on quality care and helping them access it
  • Obtaining business support

Child care is a system that is too critical to fail—we cannot survive without it. Together, we can reimagine the child-care industry for all Americans whose livelihoods depend on it.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to preK-3 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
