Quality child care is a cornerstone upon which not only a family’s stability, but also a child’s future can be built.
Ideally, any family that needed it would have access to high quality, affordable child care. Because this Ideal cannot be obtained without the coordinated efforts of many different sectors of society (parents, providers, employers, public policy makers, support agencies and higher education), this site will contain information for and about each of these different areas
I am writing this because I believe it is possible to make the Ideal a Reality. I believe that with the right resources and knowledge providers can offer the highest quality care, so I am dedicated to finding and providing the information and resources they need. I know that parents want the best care possible for their children and it is my hope that the tips and advice offered here will help them to find the right type of care for their child and, if they need it, help them find out where to get help paying for it. It is also my hope that both parents and providers will read some of the information about public policy and funding because, whether they realize it or not, they have more power than anyone to make all daycare high quality, and to ensure that all families have access to it.
I hope that you will find this site helpful, and I encourage you to contact me with any thoughts, comments, questions or recommendations.
