CCCW Responds to Child Care Staffing Crisis

Upon launching a new Advisory Council of child care business owners this fall, we quickly learned that one of the biggest issues facing providers is not having enough staff to operate at full capacity. This makes it difficult to run a business, and for thousands of working parents who depend on child care, impossible to go back to work! While deep issues regarding wages within the industry need to be addressed in the State and County budgets, we are reaching out to the public through legislators, colleges, libraries, community organizations, virtual career fairs, employment websites and media outlets, and encouraging qualified applicants to consider a career in child care. We then connect aspiring child care professionals with employers on our website, and offer free training through our partnership with Westchester County.
