Attention Child Care Community:
Tell state leaders it's time to end the Child Care Staffing Crisis and to #ReimagineChildCare!
Share the Star Ledger Op-Ed by Meghan Tavormina, President of the NJ Association for the Education of Young Children (NJAEYC), The person who cares for your child should be paid a living wage with Governor Murphy, Acting DHS Commissioner Adelman and your state legislators along with your experiences.
In the Op-Ed, Ms. Tavormina describes three critical points about the state’s child care staffing crisis.
Be sure to personalize your message.
Ms. Tavormina and her members are not alone. As a child care director in [NAME OF TOWN], I too have had similar experiences.
[DESCRIBE YOUR EXPERIENCES WITH STAFFING ISSUES, REDUCED ENROLLMENT, FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES, ETC.]
In order for families to return to work, they need to know their young children are in safe, nurturing environments. But that cannot happen without a child care workforce.
Let's tell our state leaders now is the time to end the child care staffing crisis.
We all need to recover from the pandemic, but our youngest children and their families should be our top priority!
Ensuring working families have access to high-quality child care for their infants and toddlers is important for New Jersey's economic recovery.
