NC Child Care Discussions For Parents, Guardians, And Grandparents

To leave comments on this section, please click the title and use the form at the bottom of that page to interact with this page.

This is a discussion related to NC child care for parents, caregivers, guardians, and grandparents, especially those in rural areas of the state and those from low income homes where a single parent has to work.

Adding to this, we’re especially concerned for struggling caregivers during the pandemic where businesses closed and there was a loss of income or employment.

Tell us about local, state, and federal money to help with NC families, especially those with disabled children.

Please consider giving us information from your local area on ways social services agencies, advocacy groups, organizations, county and local municipal cities and towns are helping parents and children during this very unique period.

Additionally, we’re hoping to hear from others on ways child care in the state can be addressed so that it promotes working guardians in a job market that is increasingly moving towards increased availability on weekend, nights, and swing shifts.
