Redefining Childcare

The childcare industry has been struggling to stay afloat since before the pandemic. The detrimental effects of the pandemic on the childcare industry have highlighted these issues and the importance of a strong childcare industry for producing a growth economy. My showcase will be highlighting the issues that the IUPUI Center for Young Children has struggled with after reopening. As an Accounting Intern who sees firsthand the financial effects of these issues and with my research on potential solutions to the CYC’s five priorities to advocate for, my conclusions will help the CYC with its mission to provide quality childcare and better serve the Indianapolis community.
