Fayette County Commonwealth Attorney's Experience with Child Care
A Mother's Day reflection on the importance of quality care for Kentucky's children
As a law enforcement professional with kids, I know firsthand the importance of child care. The job of a prosecutor often demands long days. When my children were young, having a full day of childcare was critical for my family. This allowed me to succeed in the workforce and created a solid foundation for my children’s learning.
I could focus on my job because I never worried about the high quality of care my children were receiving.

Child care quality is also critical. I could focus on my job because I never worried about the high quality of care my children were receiving. I knew they were safe and nurtured. I’m no social scientist, but from my on-the-ground experience, the lessons children learn in high-quality early learning centers are a big part of the foundation for later success in life. Lessons like “standing in line” and “waiting your turn” can follow a child to their future, helping them become law-abiding members of society.
I strongly support access to high-quality childcare for Kentucky kids, to help build a strong foundation that will help them in life and help their mothers and families properly support and guide them.
