When Covid-19 hit the U.S., the childcare industry played an important role in keeping the frontline workers undisrupted. Childcare providers quickly adapted their settings to safely care for those families’ children, while in many cases experiencing a severe financial strain. Childcare has proven to be the backbone to keep America from collapsing. For the past months, we’ve seen bipartisan lawmakers approving and introducing new relief bills to address the overdue needs of this industry. Likewise, many corporations in America are stepping up to support their workforce through childcare benefits.
As Covid-19 keeps most schools postponing their full-time re-openings, and parents continue juggling work, homeschool, and house life, many already are reducing work hours and quitting their jobs. Childcare providers are struggling to keep their business up and running at reduced capacity and with higher costs to comply with safety protocols. Corporate America is increasingly looking for alternatives to revert talent draining and underperforming results. The good news is Arvorie has been working to address those gaps. We’ve been supporting parents to find high-quality childcare providers, working with corporations to keep their workforce and productivity apace, and partnering with childcare providers to boost their demand.
