Upcoming Hearing on State Budget Impact on Subsidized Child Care and Early Education

On Wednesday, there will be a meeting where Alameda County representatives will discuss with the public the impacts of state budget cuts on subsidized child care and early education.

Alameda resident Caroline Topee, who has worked in the past to preserve the services provided by the Woodstock Child Development Center told Action Alameda News that she was asked by BANANAS, an area non-profit childcare referral and support service, and Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan, to help make sure local parents are involved in the meeting.

She told Action Alameda News, “My concerns as a parent who used Woodstock Child Development Center’s services is great especially since seeing how important it is to the staff and to the parents at Henry Haight Elementary School. I so often hear that they are very glad to have their jobs. The community and attendance area around this school has been hit hard by the recession and now it is under Title I funding to bring up test scores. Cuts to this program will only further eliminate any learning opportunities for the younger socioecomically disadvantaged children now and in next school years to come. We must urge lawmakers to protect child care and education from the budget cuts.”

The meeting is this Wednesday, March 21, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Alameda Boys & Girls Club at 1900 3rd Street, Alameda.
