Thank you all for the comments. It seems that there is an agreement that early education is crucial and should be seen as a whole instead of separate from other stages of school. Thank you all for the work that you do for children and our communities. We see you.

It is disheartening that early education and early care are still seen as separate. Early education is care. Please send our political leaders a copy of Illuminating Care by Carol Garboden Murray.
I just thought I would share a link to the article: Why Caregiving is Key to Biden’s American Jobs and Families Plan
Voucher system! We have been doing the work of early education serving 3-5 year olds for years. Don't mess with the system that works. If you feel it needs more access add funds via vouchers and transportation. And you will need faith based programming. Know that now and plan to use our programs.
I wonder why 'day care' grew such a negative connotation. Disrespect for teachers is common in the United States, where "those who can, do - and those who can't - teach" is the mentality. Among all educators, those of us who guide and nurture the youngest as least respected - even by our peers.
It's a mindset that needs to be evolved, if not erased.
Early childhood education is all about learning the most important things: how to regulate 'big emotions' and respect oneself and others. Our students are empowered by our loving support. Everything we do invites children to wonder, dream and create a strong image of themselves.
It's all 'school'.
