Ep. 20: Research discussion on child care research with Marnie Werner

This episode is a discussion with Marnie Werner who just published a new research report looking into rural child care. In this interview we speak about the current lack of availability of child care slots , the challenges center based care face in rural Minnesota, and some of the community-level solutions that has Marnie excited.

Quick note: At around the 20:00-minute mark, Marnie misspoke and said we lost “5,000” family child care spaces in 2020. The number is actually 4,000.
