Early Childhood Education

Early childhood programs don't just affect individual children, they affect labor markets as well.

Well-run early childhood programs build skills that eventually lead to a higher-quality adult labor force, which helps increase wages and employment rates and promotes local economic development. The Upjohn Institute has sponsored research on child care centers and employer-sponsored preschool programs, finding important implications for parents’ labor market participation.
