Child Care Tax Strategies
Paying for child care can be a major burden for many families. But federal and state tax credits can help some working parents offset their child care expenses.
Head Start & Prekindergarten
Head Start provides high-quality early education to children from low-income families. It has helped millions of children build skills to succeed and millions of parents play a key role in their children’s futures.
Parents, Children & Low-Paid Jobs
Millions of parents across the country work in jobs where low wages, unfair scheduling practices, and minimal benefits make it difficult to meet both work and caregiving responsibilities. And the parents most likely to find themselves in low-wage jobs are women — disproportionately women of color and immigrant women.
