    Today, First 5 Sonoma and North Bay Children's Center had the honor of hosting Senator Mike McGuire and staff from the office of California Assemblymember Marc Levine. The tour of Bellevue Preschool, located in Santa Rosa, highlighted the great work of our county’s Early Childhood Education professionals as well as the challenges facing early education. High cost of living and low industry wages have strained the childcare system, leading to providers closing doors when they are unable to find staff. Early education slots that would otherwise serve low-to-middle income families go unfilled because parents make “too much” money to qualify for childcare subsidies. Further, declining revenues from California Proposition 10 (tobacco) taxes present challenges for long-term sustainability of these systems. Our elected officials are key in helping create and pass legislation that helps ameliorate these issues. Thank you, California elected officials!
