The Alaska Child Care Coalition is a diverse, statewide group of organizations, providers, parents, and advocates focused on long-term, systemic transformation of the Alaska child care system. We are working together for an Alaska in which everyone can find high-quality child care that they can afford in the setting of their choice, so that all our children will be ready for kindergarten. An Alaska in which:
Child care providers are well compensated and trained creating a stable, skilled workforce.
Equity is the central value for child care, both for families and for providers.
We have crafted the most family friendly state in the union.
We will seek to realize our vision by:
Building a movement at state and local levels
Raising public awareness about the importance of early childhood education
Elevating the voices of our families and child care providers
Developing cross-sector partnerships
Building public will for policy change
Transforming state child care policy
