QUALITY CHILD CARE FOR EVERY FAMILY
House Bill 2556, is legislation that supports the development and funding of community-based training pathways and professional development opportunities for early childhood educators. These pathways are important as kids and families from various backgrounds need caregivers that match their cultural experiences. Members in the State House of Representatives agreed and passed HB 2556 by a unanimous vote of 97-0 this past Thursday! Now we need your support to get this bill passed in the State Senate!
 
TELL SENATORS TO VOTE YES HB 2556
Children and teacher in classroom
Every family enrolling a child in licensed care should be able to experience a caregiver who matches their racial/ethnic background, speaks their home language, and shares their cultural practices. Because early childhood educators and caregivers receive much of their knowledge directly through workplace-based experience, establishing training pathways that are based in communities keeps educators and caregivers in the workplace and allows them to continue gaining the skills necessary to carrying out high quality work. 

House Bill 2556 would give a greater diversity of child care providers the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills, help providers get and maintain licenses, and lay critical ground work for increased pay. Help kids, families, and early childhood educators across the state by telling your Senator to pass HB 2556 this year!
