IMPROVE RECRUITMENT + RETENTION
Working parents rely on child care to get to work and arrive ready to be productive. Yet 77% of infants and toddlers likely to need care don’t have access to high-quality care. When you support your employees’ child care needs, you retain valuable staff, recruit new employees and reduce absenteeism and turnover.
BUILD LOYALTY + HAPPINESS
Middle income families spend 20-40% of their income on child care. When employees can afford and rely on high-quality child care, their stress decreases, and they are able to focus on work.
SPUR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
We face an aging workforce and declining population. Increasing access to high-quality early care will attract young families to the state and invite parents back to the workforce.
INVEST IN THE NEXT GENERATION OF EMPLOYEES
High-quality child care helps children gain the cognitive, social and emotional skills necessary to become strong community members and talented employees.
