Child Care in our community is a very real possibility.

We have developed a steering committee to make a licensed child care an

option for families who requirecare for children ages 12 months to 12 years.

We require more information regarding what our

community requires for child care.

The information accumulated in our last survey

was helpful to get things started.

This survey will be used to show DSSAB that Child Care in Emo

and areas west of Emo is important and needed.

Please take the time to complete our survey
