2023 General Assembly Session

Access to affordable, quality child care is essential to the well-being of Virginia’s children, families, communities, and economy. These programs allow parents to work and support their families, while ensuring children gain the academic and social-emotional skills they need to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. However, an insufficient supply and lack of adequate investment in child care services has left families across Virginia struggling to find affordable early childhood education options that fit their needs and preferences.

The Virginia Promise Partnership is closely tracking and speaking out on legislative and budget items that will impact Virginia’s child care and early education system. View the latest updates on relevant measures through the link below!
