Investments in child care accessibility and affordability are investments in both in the current Michigan workforce, and the future workforce. High-qualify affordable child care supports parents in contributing to our community, while providing for their families, and prepares children for school and life success.
A growing number of West and Southwest Michigan businesses are coming together to focus on child care accessibility and affordability, along with Michigan policy makers. What is their motivation and what is the return on these investments? How can the community support or become involved in this critical and important work?
