The staff at Ebenezer Child Care Center’s Oak Creek facility was thrilled to recently host Rep. Rodriguez for a two-hour visit.
During her time with us, Rep. Rodriguez met our entire staff and toured each of our classrooms. She then sat down with us and had a heart to heart talk about quality early care and education and how important it is for the state to truly support it.
She said she understands that more money needs to come to child centers throughout Wisconsin to not only increase quality early care offerings but also to simply maintain it. We discussed the implications of the EBT Card as it is currently planned by the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families. And, we thanked her for her support in our movement to have the YoungStar bonuses separated from the Wisconsin Shares payments on the EBT card.
