Choosing childcare for our precious little ones is a tough decision for any parent. What type of setting will be the best match for your child’s personality and needs? How can you judge the quality of care, whether it’s home-based or center-based? Is there flexibility to accommodate your work schedule? And what kind of financial assistance is available if you need help paying?
This week’s Mom Enough guest, Jen Goinz, is the Childcare Information Manager for Child Care Aware Minnesota and she definitely has information you need, whether you live in Minnesota or elsewhere. Marti & Erin are grateful to longtime Mom Enough supporting partner, Help Me Grow for engaging Jen to represent them in this practical, helpful episode of Mom Enough.
