League of Women Voters CVA Sunday Seminar: Perspectives from Child Care Policy

Each year, in different states, new policies are enacted that affect early childhood care and education. Last year saw a big change in Virginia as everything related to early childhood care and education was brought together under the Department of Education. More changes are on the horizon, with plans to expand Virginia’s Quality Assessment and Improvement System (QRIS) and also to improve child care regulations. At the federal level, President Biden is calling for a free universal pre-K.

However, there is also a call for child care pluralism, as American families vary widely in their wants and needs for their children. As Virginia moves forward with policy plans, different stakeholders are working to ensure the policy changes will allow them to provide the kind of early childhood care and education they value.

This Sunday seminar will feature two unique players in early childhood care and education – Montessori Education and Cooperative Preschools: Corey Borgman, Director of Montessori Education and Outreach, UVA, We inform about advocacy for Montessori education; and Andrew Pennock, Associate Professor of Public Policy, UVA, will brief us on advocacy for cooperative preschools.
