Elevating Early Childhood by supporting businesses and our community.

How can my business support working parents?

Employer-supported child care refers to a variety of solutions, including on-site and off-site centers; emergency/backup care; subsidies and vouchers; and resource and referral, all offered to assist employees and their child care needs.

Employers win by keeping key employees, improving productivity and morale, and reducing missed hours. Employees benefit from reduced stress, increased job satisfaction, and peace of mind from knowing they have dependable care.
