Childcare for Students Action Team

The Childcare for Students Action Team was convened at the request of several community stakeholders in response to changes in education resulting from the COVID-19 global pandemic.

The team is working to support virtual learning and address the shortage of quality, affordable childcare openings in our community for school-age children. Together, they are taking action to scale the capacity of childcare providers to accommodate students for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year.
