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.
