Child Care Providers UNITED is an organization made up of thousands of home-based child care professionals throughout the state of California. We are working together to win a voice with the state so we can strengthen the child care and early learning services that working families need. With this voice we would improve child care quality by:
- Reversing the trend of slashing child care programs in the state budget over the last decade.
- Preventing providers from leaving the field by making the childcare profession more attractive
- Having a say in the regulations that govern child care , since we are the ones who see first-hand how they affect children
We are affiliated with both the American Federation of State, County and Municple Employees (AFSCME) and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU)–who advocate for improving child care quality by supporting the work of child care provider unions in 8 states.
The legislation we are seeking would formalize our working relationship with the state and give us the same freedom most other workers enjoy – the freedom to bargain collectively.
