Business and Child Care. Critical Issues in Child Care. White Paper 3.
This white paper examines the relationship of child care to business interests. Areas explored include: (1) the relationship between a robust economy and increasing family stress; (2) family-friendly benefit options and the bottom-line rewards for employers who offer them; (3) how businesses are getting involved in partnerships to address issues of early care and education both inside and outside of Virginia (includes numerous short program descriptions); and (4) projected changes for the new workforce and economy. The paper concludes with recommendations for action by business and government leaders and other advocates across Virginia for improving child care quality. (EV)
