Why Should You Be Involved?

Child care is a major economic driver in communities big and small across the state of Nebraska. Strengthening the business practices of child care providers is an important part of expanding access to high-quality early care and education opportunities in Nebraska. Quality early care and education for young children strengthens our current and future workforce and generates economic opportunities for child care business owners and communities across the state. Elevate19 is designed specifically to meet the needs of child care centers and family child care homes. At the event, you will have access to center directors, business owners, and experts in the field of early child care. Early child care providers are faced with the difficult task of providing high-quality care which is expensive, and the full cost of which most parents can’t bear. In turn, providers are left with limited resources to devote to improving quality or expanding access to early care and education opportunities. Elevate19 is a business summit for child care providers. The business summit will provide child care centers and family child care homes across the state with access to the resources they need to improve their operational efficiency and effectiveness, allowing them to focus on the quality of the program and services they deliver.
