Rattle The Windows is proud to be working to address the need for accessible and affordable quality child care for West Virginia's families. Partnering with West Virginia Association for Young Children and MomsRising, we hosted a series of "A Day Without Child Care" town halls throughout April and May, 2023. Seven town halls in four weeks across the state, giving our communities and elected officials a chance to hear from providers, parents, and local business leaders on how important child care is to them. Governor Jim Justice stopped by our last one and listened to those in attendance about the importance of solving child care.

Child care is the work force behind the work force. Without quality affordable and accessible work force, our families struggle. Every day, we hear stories of parents having to cut their hours or leave their jobs altogether because the cost of child care or the lack of available child care is too much of a burden. Meanwhile, child care providers are facing difficult decisions in regards to closing classrooms or, in extreme cases, their doors.
