Take Action

Over 60 percent of our nation’s children under age 5 and half of all school aged children are in a regular childcare arrangement.  However, the high costs of quality child
care often exceeds the cost of tuition at higher education institutions, leaving many children and families without stable childcare.

This crisis has devastating effects on American economic prosperity. United States businesses lose $3,000,000,000 annually due to employee absenteeism resulting from childcare challenges, which weakens the stable and reliable childcare system that is essential for the economy.
