Michigan Reopens but Many Child Care Centers Remain Closed
July 22, 2020
A recent survey from the Early Childhood Investment Corp indicated that access to child care remains a crucial barrier to reopening Michigan’s economy following the coronavirus lockdown. The statewide survey found that only 2,917 of 6,000 (less than half) of licensed facilities are open.
Working parents, business owners, and politicians have all called for better collaboration between employers and state and local governments to find ways to boost access to child care. Some want tax credits, onsite care, or changes to licensing requirements.
However, most are still unsure as to how governments can either help or hinder both childcare and the business of operating daycares.
Uncertainty about these issues linger yet Michiganders continue to press onward.
