Helping businesses fill the workforce gap

Skilled workers at your fingertips

Primary caretakers often can’t afford to work, but can’t afford to not work. All they need is one of the following: flexibility, work-from-home options, or affordable child care.

  • 84,000 Utah women have started their own small businesses because larger companies were not meeting their needs

  • 44% of Utah mothers surveyed said they’d utilize child care to work more

  • Lack of reliable child care has substantial effect on business through lost productivity: $4.4 billion/year for business, $8.3 billion in lost wages

  • With access to child care, employee attrition decreases by 60% while productivity and morale both increase

  • Child care is an employee benefit and valuable recruitment tool

  • Currently, parents shoulder 60% of the cost of child care, government supports 39%, and the businesses who benefit from the resulting workforce only contribute 1%

There are many solutions.


You can show that if you invest $500,000 a year to subsidize child care, but you retain some talented people when they start their families and don’t have to hire and train new employees, it’s very easy to show that you’ve more than paid for that $500,000.
A lot of times, that’s when leaders will say, ‘Aha. Got it. Let’s move forward and do this.’
— Mark Schmitz, formerly of KinderCare and now a consultant who helps companies see the business value in investing in early childhood education.
