Advocacy / Research
Over the years parents, professionals, and politicians have come together to advocate on behalf of children’s issues and the importance of quality, accessible and affordable preschool and child care programs for all children. Advocacy can occur individually, collectively, or a combination of both. Although some advocacy efforts are more successful than others, it is the process of the advocacy and voices behind it that matter most. 4Cs helps to educate parents, business, and government on the importance of investing in early care and education programs as well as school-age child care.
Parent Voices is a parent-led, parent-run grassroots organization striving to make quality preschool and child care accessible and affordable to all families. Join us as we speak out on behalf of children and families to stress to our local political leaders that child care is a necessity, and not a luxury for families.
Parent Voices meets monthly.
