Thank you for allowing 4C for Children to be part of your weekly parenting journey over the last few months as we have all navigated the impact COVID-19 has had on child care, our families and all aspects of our lives.
As some “normalcy” has begun to take root in our day-to-day lives, we’re taking a step back in how we communicate with you. After this issue, we’ll be connecting you with resources and parenting information on a monthly basis instead of weekly. So keep your eyes on your inbox on July 1 for the first monthly issue of Parent Source!
You can still count on us to share breaking news related to maintaining child care. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any further information or assistance.
