    The North Country is a child care desert, with a decline in the number of child care providers during and after Covid. Private and government agencies are trying to increase the pipe line of qualified child care providers by starting early child care programs in the local colleges and encouraging existing child care providers to become NYS qualified Quality Stars providers. The big problem here is money, of course. Further training takes money, keeping child care centers compliant with state regulations takes money and finding a place in state licensed child care centers is almost impossible to find and afford for many Adirondack families. Many women cannot afford to go to work because good child care is so expensive. That is one reason there are so many businesses desperate for more help. And that is what is so special about Little Peaks – their generous scholarships. We need more of these programs, sooner rather than later.
