Developments in child care support | Alaska Insight

Alaska families are struggling to find and afford quality child care in communities across the state. A lack of quality child care can affect not just a child’s developmental health, but also workforce availability and by extension the state’s economy. Last year, Governor Mike Dunleavy formed a task force aimed at identifying issues and solutions to Alaska’s child care crisis.

On this Alaska Insight, host Lori Townsend speaks with Kati Capozzi, President and CEO of the Alaska Chamber, and a member of the child care task force, as well as Nick Moe, Public Policy Manager for thread Alaska, a child care resource and referral network, about the recommendations coming from the task force.
