Alaska, Child Welfare,

What does it mean for your family to have access to high-quality child care?

Is it dropping off your child in the morning knowing she’s going to be protected in the event of an emergency? Is it trusting that your child is receiving healthy meals and daily physical activity? Or is it feeling confident that your child has access to age-appropriate toys and books that spark creative expression and development?

High-quality child care is all of these things and more! It’s licensed child care that is safe, healthy, and playful. And most importantly, has well-educated teachers who nurture and lead each day.

When babies and young children get a good start in life, their chances for success increase exponentially, resulting in better preparedness for school, higher rates of graduation, and workforce readiness.

thread helps families find quality child care, and supports early educators and child care programs in delivering quality care. And you can help!
