Child care is clearly an important and necessary part of our economic infrastructure so why is finding child care a challenge for some Kansas communities?  There are a number of different factors which influence the supply and the demand of child care in a community.  Some of those factors include the industry and employment opportunities and the current child care provider and early education professional workforce.

The 2018 Child Care Supply Demand Report: The Landscape of Child Care in Kansas takes a closer look at factors that impact the supply and demand of child care in Kansas.  In addition, an Action Plan has been created as a guide for communities as they investigate child care needs in their area.
