Growing Tomorrow’s Economy Means Investing in Child Care Today

The Pennsylvania Early Learning Investment Commission, in partnership with ReadyNation, released a report outlining new research that shows that inadequate infant and toddler child care imposes substantial and long-lasting consequences in Pennsylvania.

The research is featured as part of a new report entitled, “Growing Tomorrow’s Economy Means Investing in Child Care Today,” and is among the first to demonstrate how Pennsylvania’s child care crisis is becoming a financial headache for employers and taxpayers, as well as working parents – costing all three groups about $2.5 billion a year.

The report also includes findings from a new statewide poll of working parents with children under the age of three, documenting how child care struggles are hampering efforts and productivity at work.
