Good health, education and safety are some of the first things that come to mind when thinking about factors that contribute to a child’s success. But here’s one more to add to the list: high-quality child care. From starting school ready to learn to higher graduation rates, quality child care can transform kids’ lives.

We must work together to make child care more affordable for families across the nation so every child has a chance to thrive.
