Child Care Impacting the Economy
Leslie Stonehocker, Region 4 Child Care Consultant Supervisor
Finding child care can be difficult for many families. In some of Iowa’s rural communities there may not be a Registered Child Development Home provider, a child care center, or an afterschool program. Transportation constraints to/from a nearby program can also make it difficult for families to go to work/school and to secure accessible child care. According to the US Department of Labor, 72% of employee absenteeism results from issues related to child care.
