Virginia Employer Child Care Survey

In Virginia and across the country, we continue to see that child care is essential not only for working families but for our workforce and economy. To better understand how childcare challenges affect Virginia businesses and to inform potential solutions for families and employers, the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation, the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, and the Virginia Chamber of Commerce conducted a statewide survey in late August 2022 with hundreds of employers responding, representing a range of industries, sizes of companies, and rural and urban communities. The findings clearly show that child care is everybody’s business.
