The future of Step Up To Quality—and the ripple effect it has had over the past 10 years on the growth and stabilization of our community’s educational and economic infrastructure—is at risk.
The changes to Step Up To Quality (SUTQ) and other state support for child care in the current version of the State of Ohio Budget will deal a devastating blow to Ohio’s child care system and our local community’s investments in advancing early childhood education and care.
We need you to act. The children and families in our community need you to act. Your community needs you to act.
Register for a 30-minute webinar that will be held today from 6-6:30 p.m. hosted by Groundwork Ohio. The webinar, co-hosted by 4C for Children and many other early childhood education advocates from across the state, will share information about the state of child care in Ohio’s biennial budget, the Senate’s damaging language on child care and Step Up To Quality and much more.
Click here to send a letter to your state senator and representative saying that you support the SUTQ system and believe the deadlines and requirements for those that serve children receiving state assistance should stay in place.
