This spring, Idaho AEYC worked with the City of Boise to form an exciting new advisory committee. The Boise Child Care Stakeholder committee’s central goal is to help the city meet the needs of both parents and child care providers. The group will provide input on challenges facing the industry and offer direction on licensing rules and regulations. It is chaired by Idaho AEYC Executive Director Beth Oppenheimer and includes representatives from both home- and center-based child care facilities in Boise, along with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Central District Health, Jannus and IdahoSTARS.
The committee met for the first time this week and started important discussions about Boise’s child care needs. We’re looking forward to continuing the conversation!
