Re: Subsidized daycare a worthwhile investment (Letters, NewsLeader, April 3)

I totally agree with Sharon Elizabeth Gregson’s comments saying subsidized daycare would be a worthwhile investment in our economy.

I would also like to acknowledge that that young children who have access to quality early learning programs like daycares have successful development years. Children learn important social and empathy skills, they enter kindergarten ready to participate.

Subsidized childcare is good for the economy and society. It’s a win-win situation. Remember it takes a village to raise a child.
