More and more employers are recognizing the benefits of offering child care to employees with young children. All employed parents of young children are challenged by the demands of balancing work and family life. Families with two working parents or a single parent head of household both share the same concern for their families: finding and retaining quality child care.
Employers are frequently affected by their employee’s child care problems. Absenteeism, reduced productivity, high employee turnover, and general distraction are a direct result of what can happen when employees are faced with the daunting problem of, "Who will care for my children?” The need to locate affordable care and make informed decisions can be difficult and overwhelming for any family. Low wage employees often face greater difficulties with child care subsidies and lack of knowledge of existing assistance programs.
