Education Happens Here: Family Child Care Providers, Parents, and Community Leaders Demand CA Support Early Educators While Distance Learning Members of SEIU Local 99/Child Care Providers United gathered on October 15 in Van Nuys to call on Governor Gavin Newsom to help them keep their doors open to support our children as we continue distance learning.
More than 5,200 family child care providers have closed their doors since COVID-19 struck.

Yet, they are essentially facing a wage cut from the state. Enough is enough!
