Quality child care benefits everyone. It promotes positive developmental outcomes for children and allows parents to pursue their own education and career goals, eventually increasing their earning power and their contribution to the economy.
Working parents with young children require child care; businesses require personnel (of which a continued number are working mothers) and communities requiring thriving businesses.
Child care is an integral part of a community’s economic development.
Children are 1/3 of the population and 100% of the future
In addition investments in high quality early education generate returns of as much as $3 to $8 of every $1 invested.
