It’s been over a year since the COVID-19 Pandemic forced the government’s hands to quarantine Americans to assist in slowing down the spread of the virus. While there have been advancements in the conversation regarding returning to normalcy and vaccines are being distributed, there still lies uncertainty in Early childhood Education. We encouraged you to use your vote to put those in office that expressed policy improvements in the Early Child Education field. Now that our representatives are in office it is time for us to continue our advocacy work and remind them that high-quality early childhood education and child care is not only a necessity to essential workers, but is a necessity for our children and teachers as well. If you want to know what is important to someone, in this case, our representatives and politicians, you follow the money trail. Often times a budget I will show you what is most important to that individual or party. It is imperative to ensure our representatives who used education as a means to appeal to voters also utilize their power to influence the flow of funds to high-quality education efforts. With coronavirus presenting us with specific and special safety precautions we must understand that this creates another layer of need and a complex dynamic within the classroom for instructors in childcare providers. While we are excited that funds are being circulated within the economy to stimulate and assist families during a difficult time, we must remember that early childhood education is the foundation of our future generation. Therefore we must remain diligent and we cannot afford to divest our interest in tomorrow’s society.
