Child Care Aware® of America is collecting the stories of families whose child care has been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic or who have a powerful story about a provider going above and beyond to support the community. If the child care sector doesn’t get substantially more funding soon, they may not be there to support parents and the economy during reopening and recovery. Your stories can help these programs get the funding they need and elevate their hard work.

When recording, keep these talking points in mind:

How has COVID-19 affected child care in your household? 

Are you currently working and relying on a child care provider? 

Has your child care provider closed?

Are you worried about what to do for child care when you return to work? 

What is the biggest issue you are facing right now around child care?
