Child care and the economy in Louisiana [Policy brief summary]

Research clearly demonstrates the importance and benefits of providing young children with access to high-quality early care and education. Child care also plays a critical role in the Louisiana economy with broad immediate impacts for employees and employers. Child care instability leads to costly parental absences for businesses and causes larger economic losses statewide. Lack of access to high-quality early care and education has amplified these economic costs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Increasing access to high-quality early care and education will benefit Louisiana families, employers, and economy. (author abstract)
