Questions for the Candidates

When contacted by a candidate or campaign, ask:

  • How do you plan to increase access for affordable, high-quality early learning and care in Connecticut, particularly for parents reentering the workforce or training for a new career?
  • How do you plan to support child care providers so they can make it through the COVID-19 crisis and continue supporting working families?
  • How will you address racial and ethnic inequity to ensure that all children reach their full potential?
  • Do you think it's important to ensure that all families who need it can access affordable, high-quality child care?
  • Will you reach across the aisle to work with other lawmakers on meaningful solutions for young children and families?
