Another Gray Administration Attack On Child Care

Listen up!! The Mayor and his administration have done it again!!

Children from Zena’s Child Development Center in Southeast lobby DC’s City Council to fund the subsidized child care program.

Another one bites the dust in The Division of Early Care and Education. Just this past week the Assistant State Superintendent for Early Care and Education was tossed to the winds and terminated from her position. That makes 5 turnovers in the past 2 years. The Division of Early Care Education oversees all community based child care centers and the child care subsidy/voucher program. These child care centers and the child care subsidy/voucher program serve the families that are in greatest need.  The Division of Early Care Education also helps make it possible for small businesses like child care centers to employ community members within the communities they operate. Without this position being filled there will definitely be no accountability, providers will for sure continue to struggle with operating their businesses and parents will be completely forgotten about.
