Community Collaboration on Child Care Needs

The Ideas & Solutions blog is intended to provide a forum for the discussion of child care and early education issues and ideas. We hope to provoke thoughtful discussions within the field and to help those outside the field gain a better understanding of priorities and concerns.

Child Care Aware of Kansas partnered with the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce to engage community stakeholders in identifying community childcare needs and provide local solutions. A group of public and private partners worked collaborativelyutilizing a “strategic doing” process, to identify the community’s plan to address the childcare issue and initiate implementation.
