Derri Walton, 2, and Armani Jenkins, 2, pretend to feed their baby dolls at Wilcox Academy in New Orleans, Friday, Sept. 20, 2019. New Orleans gave $1.5 million to child care providers to invest in the cityÕs youngest learners last fall. Child care advocates say itÕs still not enough money and 9,900 low-income Orleans Parish children would be eligible for services if there was funding.
