Child Care and Early Education Research Connections

Skip to main content

America, it's time to talk about child care

The United States can and should build a child care system that provides affordable options for families with children from birth through school age. Families would select from a range of child care options that meets their child's needs and reflects their values; is culturally and linguistically responsive; is inclusive of children with disabilities; and accommodates their work, school, or training schedule. This might be a child care center, family child care home, public school, after-school or summer program, or a relative or family friend. No matter the setting, parents would pay on a sliding scale based on their ability to pay, and early educators would earn a living wage. (author abstract)
