1. You're Not Crazy. Childcare Is.
Play • 46 min

Gloria breaks down how we’re all breaking down: parents, teachers, and providers. And Kristen Bell joins to “call it like it is” on the cost of childcare. Parents are languishing on waitlists or drowning in tuition bills. Teachers are underpaid. And providers can barely afford to keep the lights on. “We set families up to struggle. We put every barrier we can in their way. And then when they do need assistance, we demonize them as though they've done something wrong and they haven't.” With Lauren Kennedy and Sarah Muncey from Neighborhood Villages, and parents, teachers, and administrators from Ellis Early Education Center in Boston, MA. 

 

This podcast is presented by Neighborhood Villages, and is brought to you with generous support from The McCormick Foundation, Trust for Learning, and Spring Point Partners.
