In Juneau, most (82%) parents of young children need to work, but for their 2,460 kids under six, there are only 476 licensed child care slots (space for less than one child out of five in this age group). This critical shortage impacts local businesses as well as families, and acts as an economic development barrier for the community as a whole.
