We need to work together to save ERDC and to bargain a rate increase. Legislators need to hear from providers, parents and children what child care means to you. Parents who receive child care subsidies, what would happen if you didn't have a subsidy? How have subsidies helped your family? Child care providers they need to hear your story too. What have you experienced the last 6 years without rate increases? Has it been difficult to provide care with the cost of everything else going up?
Please have each of your families complete a story form. You can bring them to us at the PRO conference on March 9th, scan and email them or mail them to us. We will have extra copies at the PRO conference.
Also come by our table to pickup you Teddy Cares Buttons for you and parents to wear. Learn more about Teddy Cares at the conference and at Lobby Day on March 27th. We hope you will be able to join us.
