CGRESD WORKS TO MATCH ESSENTIAL WORKFORCE WITH CHILD CARE

Clare-Gladwin Regional Education Service District is working in cooperation with state and local partners to support the Executive Order issued by Governor Whitmer Wednesday that expands child care access for working families feeling the stress of the COVID-19 State of Emergency.

CGRESD’s priority is to connect local essential workers to child care providers who have the capacity to provide care for their children. Those members of the essential workforce should visit www.helpmegrow-mi.org/essential. From there, their information will be routed to agencies in the community who will help them find care.

CGRESD is also working with local school districts to put in place contingency plans to open emergency child care centers in some existing licensed school facilities. At this time, these facilities will only be activated if the pressure on the existing local child care capacity is exceeded. The first priority is to support existing providers who have the capacity to provide care for the essential workforce.
