Highlights

The Alliance for Quality Education in New York, which co-leads the Empire State Campaign for Child Care, worked closely with the chair of the Child and Family Committee in the state Senate.

They organized listening sessions statewide and toured over 25 child care centers and home-based providers with Senator Brisport. By the time he filed universal child care legislation, the Senator had heard from over 1,000 people through the tour and regional Zoom meeting.

They helped secure $1.8M for child care for things like FPL eligibility level to families with income up to $83,00 and limiting copayments to 10%. They also advocated for $125M to help increase Universal Pre K funding and Statewide full day Pre K.
