Parents interested in finding, reviewing and comparing area offerings for child care are invited to participate in the upcoming Douglas County Early Education Site Tour.
The tour, sponsored by the Douglas County Child Development Association, is set for 9 a.m. to noon April 9 beginning at the association office, 935 Iowa, Suite 7. The office is in the Hillcrest Shopping Center, east of the Royal Crest Lanes bowling alley.
At least a dozen childcare centers and homes will conduct open houses as part of the self-guided tour. The association will provide parents with maps that include information and locations about each operator.
The goal is to help parents make wise, informed decisions about a service that can cost $800 to $1,000 a month for infant care.
Parents seeking more information and operators interested in participating may contact the association at 842-9679, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
