Child Care NEXT

Child Care NEXT is an initiative to support states that are ready to mount long-term campaigns to achieve transformative change in their child care policies and funding.

Child Care NEXT is transforming child care for America's next-generation needs

Child Care NEXT states are selected through an RFP process to receive deep, ongoing support to develop and implement campaigns that achieve transformative child care policy in their state. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the glaring inadequacies of our nation’s child care system into the spotlight, and it is clear that we cannot return to the inequitable and inefficient policies and practices of the status quo. Child Care NEXT is designed to make sure we build back better and stronger.
