Impactful Stories About Child Care Issues Needed — Jan 2, 2020

As part of an Iowa AEYC project to elevate the issues surrounding child care, we are creating a collection of provider, family and employer/business stories to educate our legislative partners about the true costs of child care. 

If you have an impactful story to share, we would appreciate hearing from you! We are looking for stories covering one or more of the following specific topics:

  • The child care shortage in Iowa
  • The cost of accepting Child Care Assistance
  • The cost of providing high quality care (licensing, QRS etc.)
  • The cost of employee turnover and
  • The cost of educating the Early Childhood workforce

If you would like to help please email your interest to Jocee Kelly at and someone from Iowa AEYC will contact you to get your story. If you prefer to write your own story, we are more than happy to provide you with some questions to assist you in the process.
