We can't go back! Let's ensure all families have access to high-quality child care. Send a welcome message to your state legislators and tell them it's time to invest in our youngest learners. Share with them ACNJ's newest report "Pennies to the Dollar: The Investment Gap for New Jersey's Earliest Learners" and the NJ Spotlight Op-ed "The Future of Infant-Toddler Child Care After Covid-19" by Dr. Taryn Morrissey and Cecilia Zalkind.

  • Expand child care assistance for parents of very young children; and
  • Support the child care workforce, who have historically been underfunded and underappreciated
