Advocacy Tool

Tell Us Your Child Care Story!

There are lots of stories about child care out there. We need YOURS.

Have you struggled to find or afford high-quality child care for your infant or toddler? Are you a parent with a story to share about how your child care has benefitted you and your child? Or are you a child care provider who finds it hard to make ends meet?

Quality, affordable child care is essential for working families and foundational for children’s healthy development. The National Women’s Law Center and ZERO TO THREE want to help policymakers understand what is working for families and what is not. By sharing your unique experience, you can help us advocate for better child care policies for the youngest children in the United States. Your stories are our most powerful tool to change hearts and minds and help policymakers better understand families’ need for help in finding and paying for high-quality child care for babies and toddlers.
