Employer Child Care Surviving and Thriving: Employer Child Care Trend Report #17
Neugebauer, Roger
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n192 p26-28 Mar-Apr 2010
Today employer child care is accepted as standard benefit for employees and nearly all Fortune 500 companies have gotten involved. The current recession threatened to halt the growth of employer child care as companies consolidated, cut back, and folded. However, in reviewing the status of employer child care for this trend report, it appears that the sky is not falling. This article presents insights from CEOs of the two largest employer child care providers in North America, David Lissy of Bright Horizons Family Solutions and Ty Durekas of Children's Creative Learning Centers (CCLC). Lissy shares that 2009 was a year that tested virtually every organization across every industry, and at Bright Horizons, they feel exceedingly proud to have met the challenge and succeeded both in growing their organization and improving the quality of care, education, and service that they provide. Meanwhile, Durekas mentions that many of their existing centers experienced growth in enrollment and they managed to open a number of new centers with existing partners.
