Early care and education: Support today's workers and plant the seeds for tomorrow's success [Executive summary]

In the five Southern Indiana Louisville-Metro (SILM) counties (Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Scott, and Washington), an estimated 77.4% of children birth to age 5 live in households where all parents work. These children represent an opportunity to invest in quality of life and economic growth. Investments in high quality early care and education (ECE) provide immediate benefits to local business and the region's economy. Early Care and Education enjoy healthy economic development multipliers in both employment and earnings. This means that ECE produces economic activity and benefits beyond the transactions between parents and providers. Society's investments in early childhood education and care "can be an essential component in economic development" and community building. (author abstract)
