LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Families should have access to affordable child care

Wednesday, September 5, 2012 | 4:53 p.m. CDT

I currently serve as the director of Child Care Aware of Central Missouri, a nonprofit agency that covers many counties in the mid-Missouri region. We help families find quality child care, preschool and after-school programs for their children. We work with child care program owners, directors and teachers to improve the quality of their programs. We provide business and civic leaders with information on the value and importance of child care and collaborate with them to make child care safe and enriching for children.
