Expensive and inaccessible: Childcare in Sioux Falls, South Dakota

Share
Description:

Childcare deserts have been documented at a statewide level, and workforce implications have been measured nationally, but the existence or extent of local childcare gaps has yet to be demonstrated at a local level in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. In conjunction with the Sioux Falls Childcare Collaborative (which is facilitated by Sioux Falls Thrive) and the Beacom Research Fellows Program at Augustana University, this study set out to research childcare locally by distributing two surveys: one to state-licensed childcare centers and a second to local employers to understand each of their perspectives. Recognizing the specific childcare problems at a local level will help to measure the extent of any gaps and understand how to close them in order to support Sioux Falls families. (author abstract)
