Fixing child care: What expanded public subsidies could mean for children, families, and teachers

June 14, 2022

As Congress considers the future of child-care policy in the U.S., subsidies for young children’s care and education are an important tool under consideration. Substantial evidence indicates that high-quality early care and education (ECE) experiences, facilitated through policies to expand and enhance program offerings, can support both parents’ employment and children’s development over the short and long term.

Congratulations, Jason and Marc!
