The role of early childhood education in Delaware’s business sector pandemic recovery and beyond

Share
Description:

With an increase in operational costs to provide the same level of care and the resulting restricted capacity, child care programs may not be as accessible for working families as they were before those pandemic-related regulations went into effect. Working families’ child care arrangements may have shifted and might require additional changes or coordination as parents’ jobs are phased back into the office. A Center for American Progress report from 2020 suggests that neighborhoods and families categorized as low- and middle-income, Hispanic, or Black may experience greater pandemic-related child care challenges compared with high-income neighborhoods and White families. Given such effects, businesses have the opportunity to consider how supporting child care can serve as a strategy to maintain and grow their workforce and preserve and develop valuable workplace diversity.
