Event Details: 

 

Have you been struggling to find quality child   care that you can afford?

Do you know families who are trying to piece   together childcare they can afford?

Did you struggle with this at one time in your   life?

 

                                                                        

It doesn’t have to be this way.  Our federal government has the power and the resources to put together a National Childcare Plan that could ensure that working parents have access to the kind of childcare they need so that they can continue to earn an income. 

There will be a federal election, October 19,  2015. We need to make sure that quality, affordable childcare is an important part of the election discussion.
