Child Care


We’re Raising California Together

Our Child Care Providers are not just coming together to win a union voice. Our campaign is also about raising the standards and improving our state’s early education system.

Raising California TogetherRight now, SEIU 521 providers and other providers statewide are building a powerful movement to have a voice in improving and fixing:

  • A broken child care system that has led to providers going months without pay to the point of having to close their doors
  • A lack of quality training
  • A need for higher standards so that all children being cared for in home settings are prepared for kindergarten
  • Thousands of families on waiting lists for their services
