New report highlights the business case for corporate investment in early childhood development


October 12, 2023 – The nonprofit Global Business Coalition for Education. has released a new report that concludes businesses are the key to long-term equality in early education — by supporting working parents, boosting economies and training a workforce for good jobs.

The report comes as childcare across the U.S. is in crisis: Last month, $4.1 billion in childcare stabilization funds from the American Rescue Plan expired, leading to predictions of staff shortages and closures of day care centers and preschools.
