Access to Quality Childcare in Rural Communities
What are the Child Care Needs in Rural Nebraska?
When rural communities lack access to affordable, high-quality childcare, there are significant implications for the viability of local economies and the well-being of children, families and their communities. Researchers partnered with rural communities to gain a clearer picture of their childcare needs, challenges, and opportunities. The information gained from this work will be used to help communities find sustainable, long-term solutions to meet the needs of diverse families.
