Advocacy

We are fortunate to live in a society where citizens can greatly influence laws and regulations. Our lawmakers need input from parents in order to know how important it is to support child care-related issues, such as:

  • Higher quality child care for everyone
  • More child care programs for underserved communities
  • More child care options for children with special needs
  • More options for parents who need care during times other than weekdays from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM
  • Child care subsidies for low-income families
  • More educational opportunities for young children

To voice your concern on any child care issues in Oklahoma, please take a moment to contact your State Representatives and Senators.

The Chief Clerk’s Office at the Oklahoma State Capitol can tell you who your Representatives and Senators are and will connect you to their offices:
