Affordable and Quality Child Care Benefits Everyone

Affordable and Quality Child Care Benefits Everyone

Until last September, Billie MacFarlane found herself stuck in an untenable child care situation. The exhaustion and stress took a toll. “My depression increased and I had to change medication to help cope… Being with children five and under 24/7 created extreme loneliness and resentment. A simple outing to pick up groceries or get the mail is a big deal… Grocery shopping online has become my friend.” Billie also had concerns for Sophie, then four years old, and triplets Logan, Ericka, and Naomi, then three years old, because her only other choice would be low-quality out-of-home care.
