“Childcare is the business that lets other businesses be in business.” Access to affordable childcare is a major barrier to filling our economy’s workforce needs. Families throughout Minnesota rely heavily on childcare as a key factor to participating in the workplace. Investments are urgently needed to increase the number of available slots, promote childcare as a sustainable business, remove barriers for new providers, update regulations, and ensure a high-level of safety and accountability.
Investments in our critical infrastructure and community amenities are critical to the economic vitality of the greater Mankato region.
