Child care important part of area economy

Star Beacon - 12/9/2023

Dec. 9—Area child care centers are working hard to meet the needs of parents seeking to find quality care for their children.

A variety of societal issues have made quality child care an important component in the area economy as families with two working parents struggle to find care and figure out how to pay for it.

Child care agencies report long waiting lists and have difficulty finding employees to staff operations, citing low play as a barrier to getting quality applicants.

The children are provided a wide range of educational options, fun experiences and emotional support.

On Monday morning young children got some exercise dancing to a Christmas video designed to get children moving at Kids Only Learning Center in Ashtabula Township.

Children at ABC Childcare were also busy learning to relate to one another and experiencing new and exciting challenges.
