Letter to TV or radio news director


Dear (news director’s name):

The Florida Children’s Forum is preparing to launch a major, statewide campaign championing the importance of quality child care for Florida’s infants and toddlers and we’d like for you, as a community educator, to help us out. We know that the quality of child care that children receive from birth to three serves as a major impact on the rest of their lives. And we think the average parent probably knows this as well. What concerns us is the lack of credible information out there on how to select quality child care.

In Florida, in particular, parents have been so bombarded with stories about licensed vs. non-licensed facilities, homes vs. center, and nannies vs. day care, it is no wonder that many of them are just too confused and overwhelmed to make an intelligent decision. Because of this, the Florida Children’s Forum (FCF)has designed a new web site [www.flchild.com] and hotline [1-888-FL-CHILD] that will introduce parents to an entire clearinghouse of information on quality child care.

Today, more than ever before, it is critically important that all of us in [INSERT AREA] community, work together to ensure that our children are getting the quality child care that they need and deserve. One way that we can do that is by providing parents with thoughtful, useful informational resources that they can reference. We would like to suggest a feature story on quality child care and the efforts that FCF is taking to create and maintain positive awareness towards child care through the campaign. We think this would be an article of interest to your readers.

If you would like additional information on the FCF quality child care campaign, or FCF, please contact me at (PHONE NUMBER). You can also find information on the FCF web site at www.flchild.com.
