As a longtime teacher in Durango and member of the Colorado Association for the Education of Young Children, I work to ensure young kids in our community and across Colorado have the support they need.
After a difficult year, Durango’s early childhood providers are still struggling to maintain care for the working families in our area. We need Congress to continue to prioritize early learning and care as part of our nation’s long-term recovery.
The Build Back Better Plan includes a once-in-a-generation investment in our nation’s child care and early education system. We need to rally around this plan to ensure Congress gets on board.
