When working parents can stay in the workforce, employers and families win–and so does Vermont’s economy.

 

YOU CAN SUPPORT YOUR EMPLOYEES’ CHILD CARE NEEDS. WE CAN HELP.

Let’s Grow Kids is leading the movement to ensure access to high-quality, affordable child care for every Vermont family who needs it by 2025. Business leaders across Vermont, in diverse industries and sizes, have told us that your ability to thrive depends on your employees’ ability to show up. Yet thousands of Vermont families can’t find or afford child care. When employees don’t have child care, employers struggle to recruit and retain the best workforce. Vermont business leaders understand the value of innovation and investment. Let’s work together to ensure that every family has access to child care so that your businesses grow and our economy can thrive.
