Take action for critical child care infrastructure

Apr 04, 2023 05:38PM ● By WNC Business

Business leaders, managers, HR professionals, working parents...

All are invited to learn about the impact and needs related to child care and how we all can support child care availability through action. In the first of our WomanUP In Action series, we'll share simple action items for employers, parents and business and community leaders to advocate for regional child care availability and our economy. 

Child care is critical to WNC's economy. As the workforce behind the workforce, early educators support employers, large and small, across our community by making it possible for parents to work. The earliest days are also critical to brain development, setting children up for success in school and in life.

You'll hear from WNC parents, early educators and child care experts about the significant impact Child Care Stabilization Grants have made on WNC’s economy over the past few years. Together, we can promote the policies and investments needed to avoid a loss in child care availability and set the foundation for future growth.
