Without quality, affordable, and accessible child care, most businesses wouldn’t be able to function. Workers need to know their children are safe during they day so they can focus on their job. Without business owners acting as advocates, none of this would be possible.

What Can You Do?
Help your employees find child care: Does an employee ever miss work because they didn’t have anyone to care for their children? This shouldn’t happen. Send them our way, and we’ll be able to match them up with a child care provider that meets their needs.
Tell your story: Do you have a great example of how having child care allowed an employee to do the best job they possible could? Or do you know of someone who had to resign from their position because they didn’t know anyone who could care for their children? We want to hear about it. Share your story here.
Contact your legislators: Are you frustrated that your employees can’t afford child care because of how much it costs? Let your legislators know exactly how you feel, and why quality, affordable, accessible child care is so important to you and your business.
