Child care reform is a growing issue.
Center for American Progress
American voters strongly support policies that improve access to affordable, high-quality child care—and new polling results show that they want Congress and their state leaders to act. The call for action on child care reform has gained traction over the past year, including the introduction of the most comprehensive child care legislation to date, the Child Care for Working Families Act (CCWFA) and increased federal funding for child care assistance. Three new products released today by the Center for American Progress highlight public support for policies addressing the need for affordable high-quality child care, analyze the potential impact of the CCWFA on working families, and provide an overview of the current state of early learning in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

As election season approaches, this new polling makes it clear that child care must be part of any winning economic policy agenda. See the polling results here »
Proposed Bill Would Help American Families Afford Child Care
A new analysis finds that under the Child Care for Working Families Act (CCWFA), the median family in every state would not pay more than $45 for child care each week. Further, an estimated 3 in 4 children would be income-eligible for assistance under the CCWFA, and an estimated 75% of child care workers would receive a raise to earn a living wage.
