SUMMIT OBJECTIVE

The early care & learning industry plays a crucial role in Alaska’s economy and has an impact on all industry sectors. Businesses and organizations rely on child care to meet the needs of their employees each day in order to maintain a quality workforce. Having a strong workforce is critical to having a strong economy. Plus, early care & learning invest­ments are a major component of overall education reform and yield a high rate of return. Having a high-quality early care & learning program instills a strong founda­tion of cognitive and social skills in children, making them more likely to graduate high school, refrain from criminal activities, attend col­lege, contribute to the workforce, and achieve higher earnings.

In Addition, Alaska’s key industries are based in resource develop­ment. Many of those areas are expanding, like the gas pipeline. In the years to come, there will be a greater need for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematic) positions. Early care and learning is key to inspiring STEM-driven kids. Because of what’s at stake for both Alaskan children and our society at large, it is essential for key community leaders like you to convene together at Investing in Alaska’s Workforce: A Summit on the Economic Impact of Early Care and Learning.
