WA ACTION ALERT* PLEASE CALL TODAY HB 2448 will create and fund the complete takeover of childcare from pre-birth to age five.

by Autumn Torres on Monday, January 23, 2012 at 1:41pm

HB 2448  will create and fund the complete takeover of childcare from pre-birth to age five, at which time mandatory Kindergarten takes place. Starting with the funding of a “voluntary” Washington Preschool Program and phasing in birth through three year olds, the plans will eventually create a regulated school system with performance standards, one-size-fits-all outcomes, and assessments for all children birth to five.  The Department of Early Learning (DEL) 2011-2014 Strategic plans reveal that this “high quality” government early learning system will provide programs that include prenatal care, health & nutrition, social-emotional mental health development, parent/community partnerships, and required college degrees for all providers. (pg 7)

Please contact your legislator to express your concerns on this bill!

Step 1:  Contact your three legislators

Step 2:  Contact the members of the Early Learning Committee

Step 3:  Show up at hearings – check “Bill Summary” for progress

(Special hearing January 23rd – 6:00 pm – John Obrien bldg # D)

Hotline 1-800-562-6000   

Any preschool or child care provider taking state monies will be the first organizations forced into this system which dictates how many students they can have, how much to charge, the hours they operate, the curriculum they must offer, teacher training, and health reporting requirements on all children.  Essentially this is a backdoor to bringing privately held businesses and non-profits under the umbrella of government control.  Religious organizations will also be subjected to DEL regulations that mandate their programs be “free from religious instruction, activities, symbolism, and control or influence” if any of their students qualify for child care assistance.  (HB 2448 pg 3 line 34-38)
