NAFCC Wants to Hear From Providers

NAFCC is hosting a listening session so we can inform our federal policy agenda with your priorities – as family child care leaders. This listening session will be focused on the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).

The NAFCC federal policy agenda gives us a chance to promote the power of family child care, and to get federal legislators thinking about family child care as part of the solution. The agenda conveys our priorities to Congress and, by extension, your priorities as leaders in family child care.

Join us Wednesday, March 10 / 8:00 pm for a listening session led by you!

As family child care leaders, your voice is what helps inform our federal policy agenda. Let us know your priorities so we can advocate for what’s most important to you. Friends and fellow advocates of family child care providers, please note this is a closed session so we can create a space for dialogue among family child care providers.
This session will include full group time and smaller breakout sessions so we can hear your ideas about the food program.

Register for Listening Session

Breakout sessions will be available in English and in Spanish.

Also, whether you are attending or not, we would love to get your input on what topics you’d like to see covered in the upcoming session and future ones.
