Who We Are

The Louisiana Early Childhood Business Roundtable is a statewide network of business leaders that educates and engages the business community, policy makers and the media to promote high quality care and education in Louisiana.

What We Know

Louisiana’s long-term prosperity depends on the caliber of its single most important economic asset—its people.


Early Care and Education is both a workforce productivity and workforce development issue.

Solving the Problem

The Louisiana Early Childhood Business Roundtable will educate, mobilize, and sustain the engagement of the Louisiana business community in supporting high quality early care and education in Louisiana. 

Op Eds, Press Releases and videos are some of the ways the EC Roundtable communicates with not only its members, but also with policymakers and the public to educate and inform the people of Louisiana regarding early childhood care and education.

Here you will find the latest local and national research and reports on topics pertaining to early childhood care and education, including Louisiana's tax credits and impacts to the workforce and regional economies.
