Another season change is upon us as a school year concludes. We appreciate the wisdom and important reminders about gender and racial equity from LGBTQ+ Equal Pay Day, Father’s Day and Juneteenth, over the past week, and now summer officially begins tomorrow.
And we are excitedly exploring how to celebrate ten years of our organization later this fall. We’re so excited and proud of what we’ve been able to achieve, thanks to your support, over the past ten years and celebrate our 10th birthday, finally hitting the double digits.
But, the intersection of early care and learning with our economy’s ability to function continues to penetrate a noisy news cycle…for how it impacts business, policy makers, employers, higher education, parents, and most of all, our children and families.
We need your help to prioritize family friendly policies, like ensuring access to high quality early care and education. Putting it simply: child care is vital to economic security for ALL families! Our “Child Care and Economic Recovery Across North Carolina During COVID-19” Report highlights how North Carolina needs more and better child care.
We hope you’ll consider a gift to the NC Early Childhood Foundation to continue this important work and build on our momentum into the next chapter. Click here to make a contribution and help celebrate our work to create a society where everyone can thrive.
