Reframing childcare as economic development

 

Exploring the Theory, Method, Practice and Strategy of Economic Impact Studies

These readings were distributed at the April 24 2007 workshop held by the Coalition as part of our "Changing Childcare" project that produced our Northern, Rural and Franco-manitoban reports. They are a collection of key readings on childcare and economic development, drawing on the economic impact of childcare's multipliers. All readings are available for download.
