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 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 edWebinar will be of interest to preK-3 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
