Child Care Solutions is a non-profit child care agency that has been serving Onondaga County since 1975 and Cayuga County since 2009, and it is currently developing a slate of Board of Director nominees to be elected to 3-year terms beginning in January.
Executive Director Lori Schakow tells Finger Lakes News Radio they are seeking Cayuga County residents who are a passionate about child care issues.
She adds they would like to have a diverse cross-section of the county on the board.
Schakow says there is a child care crisis in Cayuga County. A recent poll showed a 21% drop in licensed child care programs between February 2015 and July of this year has left just 1,800 slots available for the roughly 7,500 children who are in need of child care.
