Working Together to Get Ahead – Sylvia Vasquez’s Caterpillar Clubhouse


September 26, 2017

The average cost of child care in New Mexico is nearly half of a minimum-wage worker’s income. With one in four children living in poverty in the state, child care providers like Sylvia Vasquez have to learn to navigate public funding, which accounts for nearly 50 percent of the industry’s revenue. For Spanish-speaking entrepreneurs this can prove especially challenging. However, with organizing networks like Educadores Para Los Niños del Futuro, where Sylvia is president, businesses like her Caterpillar Clubhouse are successfully expanding to serve more of New Mexico’s children with best practices in early education and in business.
