Join a Children’s Chamber of Commerce

An innovative program developed by First Children’s Finance, our regional Children’s Chambers of Commerce support the delivery of high-quality child care, stabilizing working families today and building the workforce of tomorrow. The Children’s Chamber is a business-to-business partnership whose members:

  • Increase access to quality child care for all children, especially children living in poverty. Your investment in the Children’s Chamber helps to make quality care available to every family in your community, by strengthening the businesses that provide it.
  • Create a community of champions for early care and education. With your help, we can mobilize broad public and private sector support for early learning as a strategic investment that stabilizes working families today, while building a highly-skilled workforce for the future.
  • Help child care businesses benefit from local business expertise. You can share your experience and expertise with child care providers in your community to help them strengthen the business side of their operations, so they can provide sustainable, high-quality care for children.
