Save Child Care

The Child Care Industry Has Been Hit Hard by COVID-19

Due to COVID-19, many child care centers have been forced to temporarily close. They are faced with the possibility of not reopening due to reduced revenue in the form of tuition and increased costs associated with securing personal protective equipment, staff training and more.

In a survey of 6,000 child care teachers and workers, only 11% were confident they would be able to re-open without assistance after a closure of an indefinite amount of time. 47% of those surveyed said they would not be able to survive even a two week closure.

Children and families depend on child care. We must continue to ensure that the child care industry is able to survive this crisis so that parents are able to re-enter the workforce and know that their children are safe in quality child care.
