An Historic Leap in Building a Better Future for Children and Families

Today the White House released the framework of the Build Back Better, a historic set of policies and investments in children and families. Child Care Services Association and its T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® National Center applauds the framework released today that puts children’s and families’ health, economic security, and child care and preschool at the center of our national investments, reaping benefits for all of us. We call on Congress to get to the finish line and put this important legislation on the President’s desk as soon as possible as we continue to push for paid leave, a necessary component of child and family well-being. We urge states to apply for both the new child care and preschool programs that together build a better system of early learning. Children and families have waited long enough; let’s get to work to make the better future start now.
