MO Looks for Ways to Boost Childcare Workforce Because State’s Workforce is Feeling the Pain

(MISSOURINET) –  The Missouri Legislature is expected to address the state’s shortage of childcare providers. Since the start of the pandemic, about 400 Missouri childcare providers have closed. Assistant Commissioner Pam Thomas, with the state’s Office of Childhood, says the average pay for an early childhood education worker is 12.83 an hour…

State Board of Education President Charlie Shields says tax credits and the business community could help to address the childcare workforce problem. Access to healthcare is reportedly another issue for the childcare workforce. The Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry is offering childcare providers access to its health insurance plans if they are a member of a Chamber of Commerce group.
