Thank you to everyone who sent a letter or email in support of part-day early childhood programs receiving the state offered Childcare Workforce Bonus. Thanks to our advocacy there has been a reversal of the decision! Part-day early childhood programs will now be included in the bonus plan. We couldn’t be happier to have our dedicated and hard-working staff recognized and acknowledged for their sacrifice and commitment!
A big thank you to Senator Laura Fine and Representative Robyn Gabel for championing our cause. And thank you to Governor Pritzker for acknowledging the hard work of all childcare providers.
