With the official groundbreaking, Micron has made strides toward its goals of addressing the demand for high-quality, reasonably priced childcare. The top-notch childcare centre, run by the Treasure Valley Family YMCA, will offer STEM-based programming. The centre is just across from Micron’s corporate headquarters and future fab. This will make it simple for parents to visit their kids, and assist in removing barriers to employment. Additionally, it makes the transition for Micron staff members, especially mothers, much easier. One of the initial pledges in line with the Idaho Community Investment Framework is the Micron Childcare Center.

Micron’s Childcare Center will support the broader Treasure Valley community, creating additional childcare capacity by serving Micron employees. Micron is focused on growing the talent pipeline while increasing the quality of childcare resources in the region. Micron will partner with IdahoSTARS and other childcare referral tools to identify shared resources that support high-quality, affordable childcare. This further addresses the needs of its employees and the fab’s construction workforce in Idaho.

Two new industrial sector grants supported by the Idaho Workforce Development Council (IWDC) in support of the Idaho semiconductor workforce were announced at the same time as the launching of Micron’s Childcare Center and the creation of the Community Investment Framework. Included in this is a $5 million award to Boise State University, which will administer the Semiconductor for All program and promote the state’s educational ecosystem. IWDC will also give the College of Western Idaho a $4.2 million grant for the growth of its Mechatronics Program, spearheading initiatives to deliver essential knowledge and training to equip students for careers in the sector.
