HOT TOPIC: Finding Quality Childcare

Members of the Education Committee Network have expressed an increasing demand for quality childcare in our county. Many of our local educational institutions have found that the lack of supply has even impacted on their recruiting and retaining  teachers and instructional staff.   Present at the meeting was Ms. Leslie Sinclair, Director of the Eastern Shore Child Care Resource Center at Salisbury University.  She was able to share some of the concerns that members expressed as well as the critical importance of quality childcare in the Blueprint Legislation that is impacting all educational institutions in the State of Maryland.
