CLARK TOURS HEAD START
9/11/2018 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

 CLARK TOURS HEAD START, CALLS FOR QUALITY AFFORDABLE CHILDCARE
Congresswoman Katherine Clark will visit with Malden Head Start staff and students to draw attention to the importance of quality, affordable childcare and her legislation entitled the 21st Century Child Care Investment Act.
   Nationally, the average cost of day care is $9,589 per year. This tops the national average cost of in-state college tuition as well as the average cost of rent. Massachusetts families face an even steeper uphill climb. In the Commonwealth, the average annual cost of infant care is a slightly more than $17,000 while childcare for a four-year-old costs almost $13,000 per year. To address this economic and educational crisis, the Congresswoman introduced the 21st Century Child Care Investment Act to help families afford high quality childcare through refundable tax credit programs. The tax credit would be allocated directly to providers on a monthly basis, helping families who struggle to pay their bills every month. It would be available on a sliding scale for families earning up to 400% of the poverty line and could be worth as much as $14,000 a year annually. Additionally, the bill would ensure families are receiving quality care through new educational standards. These high-quality standards would be phased in over five years, allowing providers adequate time to adjust their programs to meet the new criteria. Finally, the bill would help workers by making sure employee pay is factored into the conversation around high quality care.
