Child care is a business affair: Perspectives from business leaders on child care policies


Through its Early Childhood Initiative, the Bipartisan Policy Center has been active in policy debates about child care and early education since 2014, issuing numerous reports and recommendations for state and federal action to better meet the nation’s need for a robust and equitable child care system. The specific focus of this report is the role businesses and employers play in that larger endeavor. For several years, BPC has worked with the business community on early childhood issues and to bring employer voices into the policy debate about how the child care market can be improved to work better for workers and companies. This report summarizes input gathered through a series of roundtable discussions with business leaders during 2019 and 2020. In addition to presenting ideas and perspectives on child care from these discussions, we offer policy recommendations that are informed by the business community’s views and experience in this area.
