The Bridge Project
Seventy-six percent of families in the region are living in child care deserts. The child care talent pipeline is at-risk of erosion with severe shortages in qualified professional talent. Perhaps, you've been thinking about a change and want to play a role in turning things around.
- Are you thinking about entering the child care field?
- Have you been thinking about opening your own child care business?
The Bridge Project may be the perfect guide to new opportunities in child care.
The Bridge Project is a highly effective community investment approach to ensuring access to quality child care. Quality home-based and center child care are essential elements of any healthy ecosystems. These assets strengthen neighborhoods and communities where children live and families go to work.
If you are interested in learning more about opening your own child care business, or need a training scholarship, or business coaching and licensing support, we are here to help. Our Education Specialist can coach you through the process.
