Linking child care attendance strictly to a parent's specific work hours can be harmful to children, creates challenges for low-income parents, and limits the stability of child care providers.

Please take action to make the changes that are desperately needed.

Make your voice heard! Action needed before December 23rd! Contact Governor Hochul to End a Harmful Child Care Rule. Call (518) 474-8390


For Parents:

Hello, my name is __________, and I'm a parent from (your city or town). I'm calling to ask you to sign bill A4986A, which would decouple child care assistance from work hours.

As a parent, this would give families like mine more flexibility in arriving at my child's care, especially when my work hours fluctuate, and give my child the stability in routine that young children need.

For Providers and Advocates:

Hello, my name is__________. Decoupling the work hours would provide more flexibility for working parents, and the stability and continuity needed for educators and children.

Please sign bill A4986A into law. Parents, educators, and kids need you to act now.

Thank you for your support for the children!
