We’re Mobilizing Virginians to Be the Voice for Kids

Virginians overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.
This is key because research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development.
We’re training everyday Virginians to be the voice for kids.
We’re committed to ensuring all children succeed in school and life.

DeLauro says economy will come to a crawl if federal child care funding expires

U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), ranking member of the House Appropriations Committee, wants to extend the Child Care Stabilization Act along with other Democrats from the House and Senate. The funding will end on Sept. 30 of this year. Democrats joined advocates on Capitol Hill to warn of dire consequences for both families and the nation's economy.
