Don’t Forget to Complete Your Survey
Each Wednesday we are sending a short survey to all Pandemic Child Care Programs. Please consider spending three minutes completing the survey as it provides us with your current capacity and programmatic needs. This information will help us better serve you by connecting families in our community with child care and knowing what resources you may need.
