The Economic Impact of the All Our Kin Family Child Care Tool Kit Licensing Project:
Highlights from the Evaluation
 


The Connecticut Center for Economic Analysis study found that All Our Kin's Tool Kit Licensing Program is an important workforce support for low-income families. By facilitating access to high-quality child care, the program increases opportunities for parents to enter the workforce. The study demonstrates that:

--Each licensed provider enables between four and five parents to enter the workforce.

--Nearly 60 percent of providers reported earning at last $5,000 more the first year after licensure. In the second year, over 45 percent reported earning at least $10,000 more.

--Over 50 percent of Tool Kit program graduates went on to achieve either an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education or a Child Development Associate credential.

The study found that the combination of the Tool Kit Licensing Program's workforce development and workforce support has a substantial economic impact in New Haven:

--Between 2006 and 2009, All Our Kin's Tool Kit Licensing Program created about $18.4 million in additional tax revenue and $15.2 million in macroeconomic benefits to the New Haven region.

--For every $1 spent by All Our Kin in the Tool Kit Licensing Program, the study finds that approximately $15-20 are returned to society in terms of increased gross regional product (GRP).
