You can read more about how childcare impacts our families in San Luis Obispo County by clicking on the guide or here.
Here are some key findings:
• Most child care workers can work full-time and still not earn a living wage.
• Child care is expensive, and child care workers likely cannot afford full-cost child care for their own child.
• There is a large need for additional child care capacity in SLO County.
• Meeting 100% of the low-end estimates for the potential need for child care in SLO County would increase Gross Regional Product (GRP) by more than $108 million annually and support and create 425 jobs from this new economic activity.
