Stand Up for Child Care Adirondacks

take action! 

Support Families
The cost of child care has surpassed housing as the most expensive basic living expense. 

Support Child Care Programs
Ongoing failure to commit to funding a functional child care system is undermining our economy and our future.  

  • Advocate for increased state investment in professional development for child care professionals, program enhancements, and higher subsidy rates.
  • Streamline government assistance funds to make it easier for providers to access critical dollars for longterm investment. 

Support the Child Care Profession
70% of child care providers report working a second job to make ends meet. 

  • Insist on creating viable pipelines for the development of child care businesses, beginning with recruitment of new providers.
