Child Care Report
Over the last several years, Arlington Economic Development (AED) staff has needed to address the issue of child care when attracting prospective businesses to Arlington. Whether including on-site child care as part of a relocation, or simply providing information on child care options to a new business, child care has become top of mind and a key factor in a location decision for many companies. This has been especially difficult given the significant shortage of quality child care facilities within Arlington's urban villages.
To support Arlington's abilities to attract and retain top organizations, and to address the existing shortage of child care centers and workers in the commercial corridors, AED recently undertook a study Child Care in the Commercial Corridors focused on creating additional child care centers in the commercial corridors with the goal of establishing policy recommendations to be adopted by the County. This is an ongoing effort and AED initiative.
