2023-24 Public Policy Priorities
Approved by Membership October 24, 2023
EveryChild California supports subsidized early care and education programs for children from birth to age 12 and their families. The vital importance of early care and education programs has never been as evident as during recent natural and health disasters. All families need access to high-quality early care and education programs, regardless of income level. New requirements and system changes have made technical assistance and training in the field vitally important to continue to fully serve the diverse needs of children and families.
EveryChild California’s priorities are based on sufficient FUNDING to pay providers for the cost of care. Increase ACCESS to all eligible families. Support and uplift wages and training to the WORKFORCE and provide QUALITY services to families and children.
California’s economic success and viability rely upon a comprehensive early care and education system that includes a local, diverse delivery system.
