Employer-Based Child Care Solutions for the U.P.

January 12, 2022

Employers all over the U.P. are finding that child care shortages are impacting their ability to retain or hire workers. Many employers have considered how they might be able to provide or contribute to child care but often aren’t sure where to start. Fortunately, we have some great examples of employer-supported child care already taking place in our U.P. communities that we can learn from.

To share these best practices and identify other regional partnerships and solutions, the Lake Superior Community Partnership and the U.P. Child Care Task Force hosted a virtual discussion on employer-based child care solutions on Tuesday, January 11. This virtual event highlighted how employers within and outside the U.P. are engaging in partnerships, building child care capacity, and coordinating innovative solutions to meet this critical need.
