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

The Global Business Coalition for Education offers a roadmap for businesses to support early education — for greater social and financial impact

Businesses are the key to long-term equality in early education — by supporting working parents, boosting economies and training a workforce for good jobs. That’s the conclusion of a new report by the nonprofit Global Business Coalition for Education.

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.
