Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul was in Westchester Monday to say thank you to child care workers for their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.
She stopped at Dee's Tots in New Rochelle and spent time talking to providers and meeting some of the kids.
She says the work they've done has helped us get to this point in the fight against COVID-19.
Many of the providers said they didn't close their doors.
"We would not have had nurses and doctors in our hospitals. We would not have had people in restaurants making the takeout food. We would not have had the grocery stores stocking the toilet paper and paper towels if it wasn't for these child care workers. They need to be paid for. They need recognition," said Hochul.
The child care business owners say they hope this means changes in Albany and to have a seat at the table when it comes to laws that can improve the lives of kids in the state.
