A quick update on an exciting legislative effort — underway now — to significantly boost Washington’s early learning system.
A bill introduced by Senator Steve Litzow and Representative Ruth Kagi (the Early Start Act – House/Senate) would improve access to quality pre-school and child care programs. The League of Education Voters has a nice write-up on it here.
Of special note is this key component of the legislation: culturally responsive care. As the Children’s Alliance writes, this is vitally important for ensuring all kids receive respectful, culturally appropriate care with support for dual language learners.
