Testimony: Access to Quality Child Care

Published May, 2017

On May 23, 2017, CCC submitted testimony to the New York State Senate and Assembly Children and Families Committees and the Assembly Legislative Taskforce on Women’s Issues regarding access to quality child care.

CCC testified about the benefits of early childhood education to both children’s development and for parents to be able to work and attain economic security.  CCC also testified about the critical need for New York State to invest more into child care, as only 17% of income eligible children can currently participate in the State’s subsidized child care program.  Finally, CCC testified about the results of a recent poll commissioned by CCC, which found that New Yorkers overwhelmingly want to see an increase in affordable child care programs.
