Introduction to Childcare
The industry itself is worth $54 billion in the U.S. alone, with 30% of that being daycare workers, amassing a total of 285k workers in daycare services nationally. Currently, low-pay and high-stress contributes to a high turnaround and difficulty in hiring good employees. While the stress may always be there, pay is expected to rise as the need for childcare grows to lure more workers into the industry.
