About the Coalition

To increase the supply of high-quality child care, Ann Arbor SPARK convened businesses, child care providers, municipal partners, education partners, and families in Livingston and Washtenaw Counties to form a regional child care coalition.

The coalition will create a space to have conversations, gain shared insight, and join forces with a shared aim of improving child care in Livingston and Washtenaw Counties.

This work is funded by a regional child care coalition grant via the Early Childhood Investment Corporation.

We Want to Hear From YOU!

Area employers offer an important perspective to this work. We recognize that the availability of child care in the area can significantly influence the ability to attract, hire, and retain employees. Access to child care (or lack thereof) can also impact employee attendance and productivity. By sharing insights through this survey, employers can help contribute to a comprehensive understanding of how child care impacts our community and help inform the development of a regional action plan.

Anyone who completes the survey will have an opportunity to enter a drawing for $25 visa gift cards.
