Child care in America currently costs more than the average cost of in-state college tuition. Working families, particularly people of color, are disproportionately impacted by the outrageous costs of child care. But all children deserve the opportunity to not only survive but also thrive, which includes ensuring that they are educated and cared for in safe, nurturing environments.
The solution to the child care crisis in America is the Child Care for Working Families Act -- a bold new bill that not only provides direct financial assistance for child care and early learning expenses, on a sliding scale based on household income, but takes a comprehensive approach -- addressing child care challenges like the quality, availability, and flexibility of care.
