Childcare In the Upper Valley: Challenges, Successes, and the Way Forward
Session 2: What is Working in the Upper Valley?
Upper Valley employers and families both name access to high-quality, affordable childcare as one of the key barriers to prosperity in our region, especially for low- and moderate-income families. How can we increase childcare access and affordability in the Upper Valley so our families and workplaces can thrive?
This was the second of two sessions comprising “Childcare in the Upper Valley: Challenges, Successes, and the Way Forward,” a free, public virtual symposium for employers, policymakers, providers, parents, and others. Hosted by Vital Communities in partnership with the Corporate Council, Municipal Leaders, the Early Care and Education Association of the Upper Valley, Dartmouth-Hitchcock, and the Couch Family Foundation.
Session 2 looked at effective childcare policy and programs around the Upper Valley, including solutions being implemented or explored by employers, communities, childcare professionals, policymakers, and philanthropists.
