We are working on solutions on affordable care for different nations. We really need some concrete data like this on the economic analysis . Could you please email me the actual documents on the economic analysis and costing tools and documents to: katy.anis@opensocietyfoundations.org

What is the vision for the long game? If private providers want to be a part of the long term "system" will they be included among other providers? Thank you

Also, what lessons might you have drawn from Quebec's universal child care efforts?

How has COVID-19 impacted the work you are doing? I am struggling that what inroads are being made in the States has been erased by the current Pandemic. How do you keep the motivation moving forward?

I think the most important part of the economic analysis in Quebec is the that program "has generated more revenue for cities and the province than it costs." https://nonprofitquarterly.org/quebec-daycare-model-enters-third-decade-what-can-the-us-learn-from-it/

I like the move to a 2yr. diploma for ECE and the educational approach rather than a social services approach.
Kim Hulcher
36:41
Great that you include access to all licensed providers.

Lynell and I lead the campaign and our organization has a Board of Directors. We also work with a steering committee made up of members of the 2 founding organizations.

How did you come up with wage of $25 per hour? The common framing in the US is CC staff should have a wage similar to K12 teachers?
Sharon Gregon
45:40
The $10aDay Plan calls for moving to wage parity with teachers over time as more ECEs have a degree.

All operators can access the wage enhancement for their staff if they agree to be a part of the new system - being accountable for the funds.
