Our children may be returning back to school, but we're not going back to normal. This year in Illinois, families and educators are teaming up to collect our #RightToCare. We demand early childhood care families can afford, access and trust and fair pay to educators that dedicate their lives to our children.

Thrive over survive

By Kelsey Arnold

I work as a family support specialist with Carole Robertson Center for Learning in Albany Park in Chicago and have observed the immensely positive impact that having access to early childhood education has on children, their families, and the community. I have support families in navigating the complexities of paperwork, waiting periods, and financial planning to get their children into early childhood care and education. Parents are willing to go through anything to make sure their child can be in a positive learning environment that is preparing them to thrive while the parents are able to work and achieve stability for their family. Having early childhood care and education accessible for everyone allows families to be in a place where they can thrive rather than exist in survival mode. This reality benefits the entire community as children and their families are able to contribute their gifts to the community rather than worry about how they will get to the next day. Seeing the smiling faces of children everyday who are excited to get to school where they learn and explore makes me even more committed to the fact that all children deserve access to this sort of education and support.
