NAEYC Week of the Young Child

Recap: A Day Without Child Care

Providers, families, and community leaders throughout Wisconsin marked A Day Without Child Care on Monday, May 8, 2023, to raise awareness about the importance of the early childhood workforce in supporting working families, young children, and the economy. Local events in conjunction with this national day of action prompted significant news coverage from media in all corners of the state.

WECA and Raising Wisconsin partnered to share dozens of testimonial videos from parents who provided perspective on what a day without child care would look like for them and how it would impact their lives and livelihood. The effort also included tagging and engaging JFC members to increase legislative awareness of the day and its impact.
