June 28, 2022

NEW YORK, NY – In response to the release of Mayor Eric Adams’ Blueprint for Child Care and Early Childhood Education today, Citizens’ Committee for Children of New York (CCC) Executive Director Jennifer March issued the following statement:

“We applaud the Adams administration’s Blueprint for Child Care and Early Childhood Education in New York City, which correctly calls out the importance of NYC’s child care and early education system to New Yorkers and our city’s economic recovery. We support the Blueprint’s legislative priorities and action steps as they expand access for children birth to five years of age and pay special attention to children in immigrant households, children who are homeless, children in communities with high unmet need, in addition to reaching greater numbers of infants and toddlers and supporting year-round, full day care. We are also pleased that the plan identifies goals designed to bring greater stability to the early care and education sector and to address impediments to timely contract registration and payment, and workforce staffing and stability. We look forward to working with the Administration and our partners to make headway on the goals articulated today and to build on them with needed advances in salary parity.”
