Child Care – an Infrastructure Priority
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation recently highlighted Build Up’s unique approach to the challenges and solutions for building child care infrastructure. By serving as a national case study, Build Up hopes to inspire businesses around the country to join together in a coalition with public and private partners in their community to tackle this infrastructure challenge.
“With a lack of facilities being one of the most difficult obstacles, cities and counties need to prioritize developments that include child care. Child care availability doesn’t just impact families, it’s a critical piece of community infrastructure with massive economic implications.” – Amy Buckmaster, President and CEO, Redwood City-San Mateo County Chamber of Commerce
