The partners of the Start Strong PA Campaign are asking for your help in advocating on behalf of Pennsylvania’s Child Care Teachers this Mother’s Day as part of our “Don’t Send Me Flowers – Fund Child Care” effort.

The Pennsylvania child care sector is in crisis. Unlivable wages in this sector are causing a historic workforce shortage that is closing classrooms and driving up wait lists for working mothers and families. Child care providers can’t raise teacher wages because families are already struggling to afford the costs of care. They are also struggling to compete in a labor market with many sectors offering $20+ per hour for largely unskilled positions.

Join us in Harrisburg on Tuesday, May 9, 2023 at 10am in the Capitol Rotunda.
