A collaborative team of early childhood and multi-sector leaders across the state has drafted a bold and comprehensive infant and toddler child care policy agenda. We are seeking feedback on this agenda through a survey.
Please take this survey by November 15th to provide your input on this draft policy agenda aiming to transform child care and the early childhood workforce. Please pass this survey broadly throughout your networks. Below is the vision of the plan and the guiding principles that have informed this work.
Wisconsin Infant Toddler Child Care Vision:
Every family with an infant and/or toddler will have access to a range of affordable, high quality, culturally and linguistically responsive child care options that meet their employment and family needs. The early childhood workforce will have the skills, training, and support to deliver high quality care with commensurate compensation.
- All infants and toddlers experience nurturing and responsive relationships in child care.
- All infants and toddlers thrive in emotionally, physically safe and engaging environments.
- Families have access to and actively engage with a range of affordable and flexible care options that meet their employment and family needs.
- The early childhood workforce has skills, training, and support to deliver high quality care with commensurate compensation.
- The child care system is simple for families, teachers, and child care businesses to navigate.
- Within all guiding principles, be equitable and inclusive.
