The biggest source of stress for a working parent is finding safe, reliable and affordable child care.

Companies that work with their employees to cover the costs of quality child care and contribute to a happy work-life balance attract dedicated employees and retain them for extended lengths of time.

  • Childcare costs can easily add up to over $15,000 per year. Many working families cannot afford to enroll their child in an early education program.
  • In Massachusetts, there are 200,211 children under the age of 6 with two working parents that need childcare services. In Rhode Island, there are 28,788 children.

Why is childcare so important?

Parents feel guilty enough as it is leaving their precious child in the arms of another caregiver all day. However, if that parent can connect with someone they know and trust, they are able to concentrate on the workday without worrying about their child’s well being. Assisting parents with quality childcare allows them to focus more at work, reduce stress and feel good about going to work every day.

Finding the right childcare provider is a enormous task for parents. The first few years of a child's life are a time of intense development; it is a critical period for development of their cognitive, motor, social, emotional and language skills.  The benefits of early education programs are innumerable!

For starters, studies have shown that children who participate in quality early learning programs are more likely to complete and succeed in grade school, less likely to get into trouble with the law, and will earn more in wages over their lifetime than those who do not.
