Vote Yes On 5! Invest in Rhode Island’s Kids & Working Families
Access to high quality, affordable child care is essential for Rhode Island’s young children and working families, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of high demand for child care and a limited supply of available seats, Rhode Island parents are paying on average $11,000 per year for a quality child care placement.
We need to increase the number of child care seats available, lower costs for working families, and ensure that our child care programs have great facilities that encourage learning and exploration. Voting YES on the Question 5 Early Childhood Care and Education Capital Fund will invest $15 million in Rhode Island’s child care and early learning facilities so they can serve more working families and provide our kids with the high-quality learning experiences they deserve.
