About Child Care Works

#ChildCareWorks is not a campaign but a long-term movement for families, grandparents, child care providers, state leaders, policymakers, and advocates who want better policies that support quality child care for all.

Our Commitment

Our mission is to mobilize individuals at the local, state, and federal level to make child care a priority through legislative victories, and by shifting public opinion about the urgent need for improved child care.
