Wisconsin's young children depend on high-quality and consistent child care. Yet, the early childhood profession offers low wages and few benefits, impelling many professionals to leave the field. When this happens, children's social and emotional development is negatively impacted. The REWARD Wisconsin Stipend Program is working to change this.
