Stimulus Needed: COVID-19

Start Strong PA and Pre-K for PA are working tirelessly to make sure the legislators are tuned into the child care crisis – ignoring it could have dire consequences for PA families.

We know that we are “Stronger Together” and so our campaigns are working to erase the lines that our elected officials have drawn between child care and pre-k. The COVID-19 crisis has revealed the fragility of the child care system and now many programs are unsure if they will survive long enough to re-open. Child care is not only necessary for workers on the front line now but will be a critical factor in our economic recovery. We need you to send this message to the Governor and General Assembly:

include child care, Pre-K Counts and Head Start in a stimulus package — Pennsylvania’s ability to rebound from this crisis requires it.

Tell them to take swift action to prevent the collapse of our child care system.


Because every child deserves an equal opportunity to a quality educational foundation that will prepare them to grow, learn, and succeed, Start Strong PA is calling on Pennsylvanians to focus on the most important years of a child’s development; the first three years of life.

Join Start Strong PA in their mission as an advocate to ensure that all young children in Pennsylvania have access to high-quality child care programs that their families can afford.
