Help Save Childcare in North Carolina
Families are reliant on our early education system to keep working, and our state’s economy does as well. Child care is essential for North Carolina’s crisis response and recovery. The Essential Workers of this state are not able to perform their duties without proper child care services. The Coronavirus pandemic has underscored that Child care is needed more than ever. Essential workers are working to keep our communities safe, while early childhood education teachers care for their children, often at risk to their health and safety.
Fund Child care and help support these programs that are integral to the function of our society. Many Child care programs in the state are still closed. Many may not ever reopen, making it incredibly hard for NC’s families to go back to work when the pandemic crisis is over. Spreading the word and giving to help these Early Childhood Education programs stay open can help make a difference when we come out of the pandemic.
