In 2015 the Early Childhood & Parent Network began raising awareness about 115 childcare businesses being forced out of business in the North Omaha area after being sabotaged and monopolized by the Omaha Public School System and Educare, Learning Community Center Partnership.  Early Childhood & Parent Network also worked to stop LB 773 Workforce bill that would have affected all childcare business across Nebraska.  The Early Childhood & Parent Network believes that parents are their children first teacher and have a right to decided who educate and takes care fo their children.  We must  work together to protect the In-home, and childcare centers so that parents have a choice and are supported so that their children can succeed academically and in life.
