QUALITY CHILD CARE
RESTORE and PROTECT child care funding for working families whose employment is critical to the state’s economic health. PROVIDE funding or infants and toddlers who are on the child care waiting list.

ASSURE child care funding is sufficient to match and maximize all federal funds available to Florida. MAINTAIN state funds for matching local dollars invested by local businesses in their communities through the Child Care Executive Partnership Pool.

UNIVERSAL PRE-KINDERGARTEN
SEEK demographic data on the children enrolled (e.g., economic status, race and/or national origin, primary language, mother’s education) and their educational settings (e.g., teacher credentials, form of accreditation if any, what curricula used) so that policies are created to ensure the program meets the constitutional mandate of “high quality.”SUPPORT efforts to adequately assess kindergarten readiness by conducting both pre- and post-assessment tests.
