A report made by the Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students (GEEARS) and the Metro Atlanta Chamber named: “Opportunities Lost: How Child Care Challenges Affect Georgia’s Workforce and Economy” (Source: https://www.metroatlantachamber.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/11/opportunities-lost-report-final.pdf) considers how child care issues affect Georgia’s workforce and therefore the state economy. This research estimates that Georgia loses $1.75 billion on economic activity annually due to child care challenges leading to absenteeism and turnover. This helps as a reminder of the economic implications of early childhood investments.
The State of Georgia has a population of more than 632,000 children under 5 years old. The 67% of parents of young children need an affordable and accessible high quality child care to go work. PFCCAG are opening new family child care in a family home setting regulated by DECAL across the state of Georgia. Children in Georgia will be benefit for your donation. Support us!
