Funding to jump-start onsite child care in the workplace
As part of the pilot project, employers would build out a child care facility onsite or near the workplace with funding support and coaching from C-RECC. This innovative approach brings numerous benefits, especially for businesses whose employees struggle to find quality and affordable care for their kids.
With this partnership, working parents would have slots reserved specifically for their children, giving them the security of reliable child care. Thanks to the proximity to work, drop-off becomes easier and faster—saving families the cost, time, and stress of another morning stop. Extra child care slots, in high demand across our region, can also be opened up to the rest of the community, supporting other nearby employers and families.
By supporting families, we increase security and well-being while employers benefit from increased employee longevity, retention, and performance—all of which in turn strengthens local business and the economy we all depend on.
The application is now open at https://www.ccanorthwest.org/c-recc/skagit-employer-based-child-care-pilot-project/ and contracts are set to finalize by March, so we invite you to spread the word among friends and colleagues this holiday season.
