Spring Means Summer is Around the Corner, Time to Think About Summer Child Care!
Spring has sprung and the days are getting warmer. We hope that means you are starting to make plans for your summer child care. The last day of school will be here before you know it (Guilford County Schools: June 9th, Guilford Child Development NC Pre-K: June 9th).
Do you know where to start?
There are so many questions to ask:
- What age groups does your child care home or child care center serve?
- What hours do you operate your child care home or child care center?
- Do you go on field trips?
- Are there extra costs associated with field trips?
- Does your site offer healthy meals and snacks?
- What’s the ratio of children to providers?
- Do you have a discount for multiple children?
Our Regional Child Care Resources & Referral (RCCR&R) program can help families with children of all ages find the care that is right for them. Call us Monday-Friday 8:30am-5:00pm to find out how to enroll your children in the care that is right for you and right for your children. Call direct at 336-369-5097 or 336-369-5021.
RCCR&R also provides child care referral services year-round for families with infants and toddlers all the way to twelve years old! They can help you find providers during first shift, second shift or third shift, as well as after-school care, depending on your child care needs.
On a related note: are you interested in supporting child care scholarships for working families? RCCR&R has an upcoming fundraiser called Art from the Heart on Sunday, May 21 at ArtQuest. Click here for more details.
