EDUCATION & YOUNG FAMILIES

July 20, 2017

Newton’s public schools are considered among the best in the state. In fact, the quality of
its schools is one of the main reasons young families move to the city.
Yet families with young kids consistently tell me they face two hurdles around their
children’s education in Newton: daycare and less than full-day kindergarten.
What can the city do?
 Community Supported Daycare. Private daycare for two working parents in
Newton can cost as much as a college education! This shouldn’t have to be the
case. Let’s work to create publicly supported options, partnering hand in hand
with the city’s high schools, college, and senior centers to provide more
reasonably priced daycare programs. These programs benefit not only families but
the students and elders who participate in them.
 
 All-day kindergarten. Yes, it has a price-tag. But given the pressures on working
parents, and the need to juggle work and home life around the hours of other
school-age children, let’s move toward a full-day program for kindergartens as
well.
 
Young families are essential to the vitality of our city. They keep our schools and youth
programs vibrant and full. They bring fresh ideas to our civic and social institutions, start
new businesses and nonprofits, and infuse our community with enthusiasm and zeal.
Let’s do all we can to make it help our young families thrive.
