Biden-Harris Transition Memo: Supporting Home-Based Child Care to Ensure America’s Recovery

Home Grown commends President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris and their team for setting out an ambitious vision for expanding access to high quality child care and early learning. We wholeheartedly agree that this vision can only be achieved if there is both immediate action to sustain the child care sector via additional relief funding and ongoing investment in early childhood education and child care, specifically home-based child care.

New Report Provides Data, Illuminates Opportunities and Challenges for Home-based Pre-K Providers

A recently released report from Home Grown and the National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER) provides critical state and city data on the current integration of Family Child Care (FCC) providers in publicly-funded pre-K. Titled Including Family Child Care in State and City-Funded Pre-K Systems: Opportunities and Challenges, it also examines perceived opportunities and challenges with FCC participation in pre-K. Home Grown believes that Family Child Care providers contribute a vital service, often in under-served communities, and are deserving of the opportunity to access public pre-K funding to further nurture and teach the children in their care.
