Brion Economics, Inc. offers unique expertise in the area of public policy and child care planning and facility development. BEI’s strength is forecasting the changing demand for care and conducting needs assessments.
Deeply involved in this arena for more than 15 years, we are pleased to see that child care is moving toward being considered a quasi-public service by many California cities and counties. Government and private employers recognize child care as a key indicator of a community’s quality of life and acknowledge the role it plays in attracting and retaining workers.
Despite its value, child care businesses can seldom fund their own expansion or build a new facility when needs grow.
Through our many client projects, BEI has actively created solutions to meeting the demand for quality child care. Among our strategies are linking the real estate/developer community with the child care industry and intermediaries.
These new relationships have brought about the expansion of public policies, programs and financial support for the development of child care facilities. Because this public policy issue impacts millions of California families, we are committed to supporting the process and moving the dialogue forward.
