About the Event

With the upcoming state budget process upon us, it is important to get  the voices of early care and education professionals in front of our  legislators.  You know the essential role  of child care in helping Wisconsin’s workforce and economy to thrive,  and you know that the early care and education workforce needs more  funding in order to survive. This is your time to share your story. Once you are registered,  you will receive a handful of emails which will provide tips and best practices on how to prepare for the day. A confirmation of your assigned regional meeting and Zoom link will be provided in an email on March 1st.

We have organized the meetings with legislators and staff by the child care licensing region.
