HuffPost-Parents

HuffPost, February 19, 2016 – Contributed by Alan E. Guttmacher, Senior Advisor for The Permanent Fund for Vermont’s Children.

Across the U.S., almost 11 million children younger than age 5 are in some type of child care arrangement, spending an average of 36 hours a week there. In Vermont, where I live, more than 70% of children 0 to 5 years of age are in a child care setting outside their home. Yet, efforts to improve child health and development have only rarely recognized this reality of children’s lives and even more rarely taken advantage of it.
