Kishan Gets Three New Affordable Early Childhood Education Programs Opened, Pushes for More

Starting yesterday morning, dozens of families were able to enroll their children into 3 new affordable child-care cooperative programs that I worked very hard over the last year to open up.  I went to one and met Hanna Lee, a young working mother, who said, “This is such a great idea – it’s very affordable,” adding that this innovative public option will save her family over $16,000 this year (versus private options).
