As part of our “You Matter” Campaign by Vibrant Futures take a look at the Amplifying Voices of the Child Care Sector. This month marked one of the biggest wins for families with young children, child care owners, operators and professionals in Michigan with the signing of the State Budget. Child Care providers’ voices helped shape Michigan’s investments in a number of directions from child care business grants to eligibility extensions in CDC subsidy payments to the start of higher wages to payment on enrollment over attendance. See what the sector said and how close the legislature hit the mark. This Vibrant Futures brief is one in a series to help raise their voice and guide the way. We are in it together! More changes to come!
