Education & Workforce Development Council


Ensuring Access To Affordable, Quality Early Childhood Care and Education
Friday, Oct. 12  
10 - 11:30 a.m.
L.A. Area Chamber
350 S. Bixel St.
Los Angeles, CA 90017  

Access and affordability are terms Californians often use when referring to child care services in our state. Not only is there a shortage of child care services, but also the available care is extremely expensive and unaffordable to most (preschool is between $8,500 - $10,500 per year and infant and toddler care is between $9,000 - $14,500).
The crisis is compounded, ironically, by our growing economy. This year, California surpassed the United Kingdom in becoming the world's fifth-largest economy. A strong economy means there is a higher demand for quality child care and early education services to support our growing workforce.
Please join us for an important conversation with California Assemblyman Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento). Together, we will discuss how we can collectively work toward strengthening the state's child care and early care and education system while simultaneously providing our current workforce with the required, quality, affordable childcare services needed to remain in the workplace.
The Education & Workforce Development Council leads business community and educator partnerships to reform our public education and develop the 21st century workforce to successfully compete in the global economy.  

All Council meetings are open to Chamber members only. Media and guests are only allowed with prior approval. 

Special Guests:
Hon. Kevin McCarty
California State Assembly
