Child Care Providers United
This is Our Movement
In California, we all want children to have a great start in life. We know that access to high-quality child care and early childhood education in the first 5 years of a child’s life are critical to their success. Yet, as California providers, we make an average wage of only $5 to $8 per hour.
That’s why we are coming together to ensure all children and families have access to quality and affordable care and to lift up our profession and improve our livelihoods.
Because child care providers have advocated tirelessly for higher rates, access to advanced training, and a voice in state-level policy, we now have the opportunity to be recognized as the official family child care provider union – and win permanent, binding improvements for all our child care providers.
