Resources for child care providers
Monday, February 12, 2018
A 2015 poll by The Washington Post showed that 75 percent of mothers and half of fathers had passed up on employment opportunities, switched jobs, or quit a job because they lacked paid leave or child care.
It’s clear that reliable, quality child care is essential for working parents. That’s why the Southwest Initiative Foundation is offering help for child care providers. The Bright Beginnings Loan Program offers 5 percent, fixed interest loans of up to $15,000 for child care businesses in southwest Minnesota.
