(Sacramento)  - Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (D-Winters) rallied with childcare providers, parents and activists at the State Capitol for her Assembly Bill 2292, which expands access to infant and toddler care and “$1-Billion Dollars for Babies”, a budget priority of the California Legislative Women’s Caucus. “Together, we can build a system that is going to outlast us, so that our babies and our grandbabies have a future that is bright and filled with opportunity.” Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry said.

(Sacramento) – A measure to expand access to affordable infant and toddler care in California  is making its way through the State Capitol. Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (D-Winters) presented her Assembly Bill 2292 to the State Assembly for a vote, where it passed with bipartisan support. She told her colleagues, “By increasing the State’s capacity to serve our youngest children, this bill will ensure that a child’s path to success starts the second he or she is born.”

For many working families, access to quality child care has become an unattainable privilege, leaving parents with a difficult decision: Do they work to support their family, or stay at home to care for their kids? This dilemma is being faced by more and more California parents, struggling to cobble together whatever child care they can find. This is unacceptable, which is why I authored Assembly Bill 2292 and will be holding a rally with child care advocates and parents on Tuesday.

This bill would expand our state’s child care capacity by increasing the rates paid to providers for infant and toddler care, offering grants to help pay for new and renovated day care facilities, and establishing a fund to recruit and train a new generation of providers.
