On February 8th, U.S. Senator Jack Reed joined RIght from the Start at Beautiful Beginnings Child Care Center in Providence to announce $22.5 million in federal stimulus funding to help Rhode Island’s child care providers so they can remain open and continue to serve our young children and working families. Thank you Senator Reed!

“Child care is a public good and I am grateful to our dedicated child care providers. They are essential workers who provide a strong foundation for learning and make it possible for others to do their jobs too. This new federal funding will help safely open more child care spots and facilities, protect children and adults, and open up doors of opportunity for working parents to earn a living and provide for their family.” – Senator Jack Reed
