|In the face of an increasingly competitive global economy, building a highly skilled workforce is more important than ever. American business depends on a strong workforce, now and in the future, to compete and succeed globally. The ability to recruit and retain top talent is of paramount importance.||Our education system is falling short in preparing students to succeed. Business leaders understand the importance of a well-educated workforce to support a strong economy. What is less discussed is the underestimated phase of education and human development: early childhood education, years 0-8.|
For American business, advancing high-quality childcare is a winning proposition and a wise investment in America's future. Our goal is to educate and encourage business to make this wise investment.
