Employer/Business Resources

Studies show that parents who have consistent, affordable, quality child care are less likely to be absent from work or to leave their jobs. They are also more productive while at work. Without reliable child care, employees frequently feel torn between their responsibilities as parents and their responsibilities on the job. As an employer, you are in a unique position to make your workplace family-friendly and to support quality, affordable child care for your employees.


Your local Child Care Resource & Referral Agency can provide the following services to employers:

  • Free consultation for employees who need help finding child care or child development advice or paying for child care

  • Information on the Oklahoma and the Federal employer child care tax credit

  • Help calculating the return on investment for employer-supported child care benefits for employees

  • Suggestions of cost-efficient ways to address child care needs of employees

  • Identification of characteristics of successful employer-supported child care programs

  • Help creating and supporting child care services

  • Provision of on-site seminars for employees on balancing work and family, finding quality child care, and child development
