Hi Everyone, please review the attached information. We have a couple of different campaign going on right now.
1. Save Our Vans! Did you know OCC is trying to ban 15 passenger vans? What is next? Will they ban mini vans or passenger cars? They need to understand these are your family cars too. Do you want to drive your family around in a mini bus? Is it legal to park a bus in your residential area? Please send in your stories and have the children color the attached vans so we can take them to the Early Learning Council meeting next month. Have parents write something about what it will mean to them if you can not transport their children to school and/or take them on field trips.
2. It is time to have one ERDC rate for everyone! Please read the flyer and send us pictures of children, you and your staff. We have also included color pages for the children. We need stories from you and parents about the importance of one rate. Why our rate A children worth more? Why are there different rates minimum wage is the same every where in Oregon. We will use the pictures in bargainig, meetings with legislators and where ever else it will help to make the point. Every Child Treated Equal! Every Provider Treated Equal!
