Childcare & Early Education

Childcare is on a Cliff's Edge

September 13, 2023
When a binge-worthy tv show ends a season with shocking uncertainty or a surprise revelation, fans are left on the edge of their seats waiting for the next part of the story. Fictional cliffhangers can be exciting, leaving you wanting more. But when it’s real life, and when the livelihoods of our families hang in the balance, a cliffhanger is the LAST thing we want to experience!

End the book bans. Urge Congress to support schools.

September 12, 2023
3rd grade. Do you remember your third grade? For me, it’s the smell of warm peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as I opened my lunchbox, the sound of crinkly sheets of multiplication tables, and memories of my single mom scrambling to get me to class. Mrs. Upton, my Springhill Lake Elementary...

Back to school is always a stressful time. The question of does my son have what he needs for school changed when he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was in the 1st grade. No longer am I worrying ONLY about pencils, crayons and backpacks. Added on to that is low supplies, insulin and...

Preschool to Prison Pipeline

August 15, 2023
As a MomsRising volunteer for many years, I've advocated for making early learning available to every kid in our country, and for funding HeadStart to do this important work. You, too, can get involved in this important advocacy, by clicking here to sign a petition to fully fund HeadStart. Unfortunately, I’ve also seen in my own community this year that without good policy, appropriate avenues for feedback, and culturally competent staff, HeadStart programs can struggle to provide effective early learning services for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) families. But I've also learned that as a white mom, I have the power to do something about it.

Tell Congress, our kids deserve care!

July 26, 2023
As the parent of young children, I often hear the sentiment “enjoy every moment, it goes by in the blink of an eye” or “The days are long but the years are short.” I have to admit, even when I’m cleaning up a very expensive carton of eggs from the floor or changing my sixth diaper of the day, I know that I will somehow miss this time when my little ones want to cuddle up any chance they get, or enthusiastically sit down for storytime.
