CHILD CARE IN A
THURSDAY, JUNE 11 | 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
A COVID-19 world has proven how critical child care is to the labor market. Just as many other businesses were forced to permanently close their doors due to the pandemic, it is estimated that one-third of all child care facilities nationally won’t reopen.
This presents an even greater issue as we begin to return to work. Will employers be more flexible with employees? Where can employees send their kids during the workday? Is it affordable? Is it safe?
Cheryl Oldham of the US Chamber of Commerce and
Representative Quinn Johnson will explore the current state of affairs both nationally and in Delaware and what the future of child care could look like in a post-COVID-19 world.
