Advocate for Early Learning.
Washington’s child care system is in crisis. There is not enough high-quality care available to meet demand. Care that is available is often so expensive it is out of reach for many working families. Kids are arriving at kindergarten unprepared for school. Providers often earn so little they rely on public assistance.
Your voice and experience matter! By investing in high-quality, affordable child care, we can increase access and provide more children with the opportunity to attend high-quality programs that prepare them for school and beyond.
Join child care providers and other early learning professionals to learn more about the legislative process and how you can make yourself heard in Olympia. Learn effective ways to share your experience as a small business owner, child care employee, or concerned resident. Participants are strongly encouraged to share their stories.
