Child Care is Essential


Early childhood education prepares children to learn, grow, and succeed.

Many North Carolina families struggle to afford safe, quality care for their young children.

Improving the child care subsidy rates will make it possible for more child care businesses to provide services to low-income families in their communities. Every child in every corner of North Carolina deserves a strong start in life.

Ask your state legislators to make child care affordable for more families by investing in child care subsidy.
