Share Your Quality Story
We recognize Ohio’s complex quality child care system requires a complex response to survive the devastating impacts of COVID-19 and to continue providing essential support to children, families and the state’s economy. The COVID-19 pandemic has quickly exposed the fundamental weaknesses of and threats to Ohio’s child care system that many families, early educators and employers have experienced over the past decades navigating a largely under-resourced system. There is no quick fix or easy solution for Ohio’s child care system as we move into the recovery period of the COVID-19 pandemic. Child care requires investment, time, attention and creativity to get through this crisis and help our state get back on its feet.
We need your help to do just that as we continue to advance access, quality and equity for Ohio’s child care system. One of the most powerful advocacy tools is your experience and the stories that demonstrate the critical work you do every day for young children and their families. Please take five minutes to answer two key questions and share your story today. We will use and share what we learn from you with policymakers and stakeholders across the state to protect and honor your work and celebrate the difference it is making in the lives of our youngest and most vulnerable children.
