To successfully provide for their families, working parents need the peace of mind that comes from knowing that their kids are in a safe and developmentally appropriate environment.
Unfortunately, the cost of child care has skyrocketed in recent years, and quality care is out of reach for most families. At the same time, many childcare workers earn minimum wage—not enough to provide for their own children.
Every Child Matters supports access to quality, affordable child care for all families and fair wages for childcare workers. It gives kids a great start and allows moms and dads to work—or better their lives through job training or higher education—so they can support their families.
