With the potential of schools closing or moving to online forms of teaching due to the COVID-19, many parents are concerned with the future of their child care. Listed below are resources from organizations around the country to help ease the mind of working parents in the York community.
Child Care Consultants of York is suggesting searching on social media or care.com for local caregivers. Many teachers and college students whose schools have closed are offering temporary child care services. As always, ensure your care provider has the appropriate background checks and clearances. Visit the Child Care Consultants of York website for more information.
If an employee is in need of assistance to pay for child care, while they work, they may qualify for Child Care Works. More information and an application can be found online here

As school districts across York County have closed for the next two weeks, we have started to compile information for where students can access free to reduced cost meals in their communities. These options are available only weekdays unless otherwise specified.
