PART 1: “Turning Stumbling Blocks Into Building Blocks for Children” Presented by Laurie Furstenfeld, Child Care Law Center

Family child care providers are a vital part of the local economy and contribute to sustainable and healthy communities. Working families with young children need child care located convenient to where they live. Family child care homes provide the majority of infant-toddler care, and can accommodate workers who have non-traditional or variable schedules. Child Care Law Center’s “Turning Stumbling Blocks into Building Blocks” project works with targeted communities around the state to expand the family child care home capacity, and remove local barriers to establishing family child care businesses.

Child Care Law Center is a state support center solely devoted to the legal issues surrounding access to safe, affordable, quality child care. (30 minutes)
