December 9, 2020 Child Care Surveys
One industry, too-often sidelined but absolutely crucial in our modern-day economy, has been significantly impacted by COVID-19: child care. Child care programs provide a place for parents to send their children so they can participate in the workforce, provide for their families, and contribute to the economy. Additionally, prior to the COVID-19 public health crisis, limited access to affordable high-quality child care had significant recruitment and retention costs for employers. As child care programs have closed or are operating at a limited capacity due to the pandemic, the impacts of this lack of child care options on families and employers are even greater. The Saratoga County Prosperity Partnership, Saratoga County Employment & Training, Warren County Employment & Training, Brightside Up, and the Southern Adirondack Child Care Network are conducting two separate surveys to assess the marketplace for future child care needs. Any data collected will be aggregated and your individual responses will remain confidential.
