The child care system faces serious challenges as communities continue to respond to the pandemic, racial injustice, and lack of federal funding. Program closures persist, in part because it remains difficult to recruit, retain and compensate workers. In addition, parents are struggling to afford child care and return to the workforce. Child Care Aware® of America has gathered helpful information on your state’s child care stats and provides clear action steps that you can take to join the fight in bettering our child care system.
