Child Care Business Collaborative


About the Business Collaborative

Early Learner South Dakota is pleased to partner with the Bipartisan Policy Center and the United States Chamber of Commerce Foundation on a national level; along with South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Elevate Rapid City, The Greater Sioux Falls Area of Commerce, and the John T. Vucurevich Foundation to launch the South Dakota Child Care Business Collaborative.

This business collaborative will act as a think tank and the vehicle to move action forward on the child care crisis in South Dakota. Early Learner South Dakota will act as the facilitator in this process, provide innovative solutions to the group, and bring research from other states working on the child care crisis.
