The First Five: Childcare And Parents

Feb 10, 2015

When I’m at work, who will watch my kid? It's a question parents ask, sometimes well before they start a family. Yet high-quality childcare seems harder and harder to find.

On February 18th, Charles Compton hosted a one hour show on what parents face when they look for childcare. Our guests were Jennifer Perney of the Family Enrichment Network, WSKG Education reporter Solvejg WastvedtLaura Bowen, Executive Director of the childcare center Mom's House, and Jennifer Heggelke, a parent whose son attends Mom's House.  

Our next Community Conversation will be on March 18th and focus on childcare and early education policy. In the meantime, you can always post on our Facebook page or tweet us @WSKG to keep the conversation going.
