You’re invited to thread’s 5th Summit on the Economic Impact of Early Care & Learning: Quality Child Care Creates Futures!

A strong child care system creates futures. Today’s workforce is supported while tomorrow’s workforce gets a strong foundation for school and life. Families are less stressed. Businesses are more productive. Alaska’s economy grows.

But, many families in Alaska have limited or no access to quality child care. Businesses are struggling to retain employees that need child care. The child care workforce is struggling to stay in the field because of low wages. Change is necessary, critical — and attainable.

Join the conversation with national and local business leaders, policy makers, and economists on the future of child care in Alaska.
