Sen. Seminara: New apprenticeship program
is “good news for children and families”

Sen. Lisa Seminara, Ranking Senator on the Committee on Children, today issued the following statement about the formation of a new Registered Apprenticeship Program to encourage jobseekers to enter careers in home-based child care.

“This program will help to fill a void in our early childhood care workforce. Enabling registered apprentices to ‘earn while they learn’ is a common sense way to train workers and create new career opportunities. It represents good news for children and families, our economy, and expanded access to care.”
