Strengthening the Foundations of a Thriving Economy: Child Care

This webinar will be held on Monday, April 15, 2024, from 11:00am to 12:00pm.

Providing quality child care in New Hampshire is expensive. Even with high tuition costs, profit margins are slim and employee compensation is low. In 2022, New Hampshire child care workers made a median wage of $12.99 an hour, compared to $23.04 for all Granite State workers. Dr. Sara Vecchiotti, Executive Director of the Couch Family Foundation, will moderate a panel exploring the child care market mismatch in the Granite State. Panelists will review federal and state funding for the sector, provider operating budgets and pressing needs, and how one-time COVID-19-related child care funds were used.
