Kulanka Sharci-dejinta ee Gobolka

The 2022 session of the Sharci dejinta Gobolka Washington began on Jan. 10, 2022, and you can see what we are advocating for on our 2022 legislative agenda (Ingiriisi / Isbaanish / Soomaali).  Learn more about why investments are needed in Washington’s child care system here: (Ingiriisi/Español).

The 2021 legislative session was a historic session for child care, where families, providers, communities, and policymakers came together to pass the transformational Fair Start for Kids Act. However, the early child care workforce is still suffering. Nationwide, 80% of child care programs are reporting staff shortages. And here in Washington, poverty wages and high turnover rates are preventing licensed care providers from operating at capacity, forcing many families to still look for care outside of licensed opportunities.

Policy makers have the opportunity to address this looming crisis now. Together, we can provide respectful wages to Washington’s professionals and give more options to families who do not have access to licensed care.

2022 Legislative Priorities

Reduce barriers to workforce recruitment

Fund child care mental health consultation support

Expand facilitated play & learn groups for Family Friend & Neighbor caregivers

  • Decrease the time it takes to complete the state child care background check process
  • Fund data collection on transitional kindergarten
  • Provide additional care for families traumatized by the pandemic
  • Expand supports for children being unjustly held back from success due to structural racism, socio-economic barriers, or other systemic injustices in their community
  • We are calling for $185,000 in ongoing investments
  • Many children are cared for by family members, friends, or neighbors (FFNs). Facilitated, evidenced-based play and learn groups provide quality early learning opportunities to thousands of children in FFN care who are not enrolled in formal early learning programs either by family choice, or lack of access, or affordability barriers. Increasing access to play and learn groups can help move Washington closer to its goal to have 90% of children ready for kindergarten when they enter, and support the needs of families and caregivers.
  • To learn more about our multi-year strategy to connect families with expanded Play and Learn Groups in their communities, click halkan.
  • We care calling for $3.1 million in ongoing investments
  • Take Action! Advocate for increased Family, Friend and Neighbor support on social media (Ingiriisi/Isbaanish) or by writing to your legislators (Ingiriisi/Isbaanish).

Parent Ambassadors learn advocacy, leadership, communications and engagement skills to become strong voices for young children and families in our state. They advocate and teach others about the importance of high-quality child care and early learning programs that benefit young children and help close the opportunity gap. Ambassadors receive training and support to become effective advocates and leaders. If selected, you will serve a one-year term that begins in March 2022. All travel expenses are subsidized by WSA.
