High Quality
Affordable Childcare.

The vast majority of parents in Tennessee with children under the age of six are reliant upon child care. Depending on program quality, child care can either advance or impede early learning and, in turn, future education and workforce success. We need to pay special attention to supporting quality, affordable child care programs.

Demonstrated public returns on investment are as high as $16 for every $1 spent on quality early care and education.
