Black women from across the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County released demands on May 15 of state and local leadership to prioritize early childhood education providers in pandemic response. 

“There is no reopening our economy without the individuals and centers that care for babies and children while their parents are at work,” said Ellicia Lanier, mother, executive director of Urban Sprouts Child Development Center, and member of the Ready by Five Steering Committee. ‘Childcare providers are choosing between our livelihood and our lives as we make decisions about reopening.”

Too many community-based and home-based childcare providers do not have the resources they need to reopen safely for their staff, their children, and their families, she said.
