"We look forward to partnering with leaders across our community, and in government, to continue to make bold changes and chart a path towards compensation reform."—Emily Sharrock, Associate Vice President, Bank Street Education Center, in Empire State Campaign for Child Care statement
A session that started with promise and big ideas to address the needs of New York’s youngest children, their families, and the child care workforce ended with bright spots for child care, amidst missed opportunities and incomplete solutions.
Read our full statement reflecting on the end of the 2023 legislative session:https://www.empirestatechildcare.org/uploads/1/1/1/1/111173201/esccc_2023_end_of_session_statement.pdf
This year, the Empire State Campaign for Child Care sought to take New York further down the path to universal child care by: addressing the critical child care workforce shortage, equitably extending child care assistance eligibility to more families, and removing unnecessary barriers that prevent many eligible families from receiving the supports they need to thrive. Thanks to the hard work of passionate child care advocates, tireless legislative champions, and Governor Hochul’s recognition that this year was the time to break down barriers faced by families who try to access child care, New York made important progress in all three areas.
