Letter: COVID-19 makes funding for birth-age 5 child care urgent

Read the Worcester Telegram

Child care programs and early educators serving birth-age 5 may become an endangered species following COVID-19. Samantha Aigner-Terworgy, Department of Early Education and Care commissioner, shared that the lost monthly revenue for private pay to child care sites across the state is $248 million. The Care.com proposal for early educators to provide in-home care further threatens programs' sustainability. Exacerbating the issue, MassBudget forecasts revenue loss for the fall of FY21 to be $5-5.7 billion.
