A "Must Hear" podcast for Child Care Centers and Family Providers


The Committee for Economic Development (CED) has released a podcast specifically for child care centers and a podcast specifically for family child care home providers

Both feature the following panel of early childhood financing experts: Heidi Hagel-Braid, Chief Program Officer, First Children’s Finance; Louise Stoney, Independent Consultant and Co-founder of Opportunities Exchange and Alliance for Early Childhood Finance; and moderator, Grace Reef, CED Outreach Consultant.

The podcasts are a “must hear” for anyone operating a child care program who wants to more clearly assess the implications of available federal assistance, as well as how to prioritize business expenses and support economic viability in the short- and long-term. 

These, along with other related resources, can be accessed on CED’s web site at: https://www.ced.org/coronaviruschildcare.

We hope the podcasts are of help to you at this time of pandemic and economic crisis. We are thinking of you, please contact us if you need anything.
