Quality Childcare Supports Current and Future Workforce

One of the many components to helping employers find and keep employees is quality childcare and early childhood education. Access to quality care allows parents to be more reliable, focused employees. Also, a growing body of research shows that early education programs give children a significant head start in learning, development, and future potential. To increase the awareness of these benefits, and advocate for improved access, the Chamber has created an early childhood education task force.

Members with an interest are invited to join the task force. Meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of each month at 8:00 a.m. at the Chamber. If interested, contact Fred Gaffney at the Chamber at 570-784-2522 or email.
