Show+Tell: Solving the US Crisis for Accessible, Affordable and Quality Child Care

Early care and education is in need of bold solutions to these systemic challenges.

Across the country, the United States is experiencing a child care crisis only made more acute by the coronavirus pandemic. Families face affordability, access and quality issues that often leave them with few viable options. At the same time, increasing costs and demand for care has not led to higher wages for caregivers who struggle to earn a living wage.

On June 2, 2020, Promise Venture Studio’s Show+Tell series focused on Solving the US Crisis for Accessible, Affordable, & Quality Child Care.  This two hour virtual event showcased innovation in the field including creative cross-sector partnerships, unique family child care networks, and new applications of technology.

Hosted by Promise Venture Studio, ECFC, Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, Imaginable Futures, Silicon Valley Community Foundation, and Valhalla Charitable Foundation, Show+Tell aims to support connections with innovative ventures (both for- and nonprofits) alongside a diverse audience of impact investors, philanthropists, government organizations, practitioners, researchers, and experts across the field.
