Child Care

Childcare Action & Investment Plan

 

.According to Early Learning Indiana, only 22% of children in Hamilton County are served by high-quality care. Some parts of the county have multiple providers that are at capacity but also operate at very high cost, while other areas do not have access to any high-quality or even accessible quality options. This disparity in early childcare coverage impacts children, parents, employers, and the broader Hamilton County community.

To combat this, Invest Hamilton County is working with Indianapolis-based national consulting firm TPMA to develop a Childcare Action and Investment Plan.

We need your valuable input about the challenges and possible solutions to child care and pre-K access that you’ve experienced. Please take our short parent survey to be part of the conversation.

Goals of the Action & Investment Plan

  • In-depth Stakeholer Engagement
  • Data Analysis and Gap Assessment
  • Investment Strategy
  • Establishment of a Childcare Collaborative
