Every family deserves access to affordable, high-quality early care and learning. Recently, Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) and Congressman Bobby Scott (D-VA) introduced the Child Care for Working Families Act of 2017. This new bill would:

  • More than double the number of children eligible for assistance under the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG), and ensure these children gain access to high-quality early learning programs.
  • Help states create universal preschool programs for three and four year olds during the school day, and provide a higher matching rate for infants and toddlers.
  • Support the child care workforce through increased training and compensation by ensuring they are paid a living wage.
  • Help Head Start provide full-day, full-year programming.
