Echo Bottle Rockets childcare program set to open
Monday, August 06, 2018
ECHO Bottle Rockets Child Care is almost ready to take off, and the center’s staff can’t wait to get going.
In the last several weeks, they have been busy at work assembling new cribs, organizing games and equipment and waiting anxiously to clear the final hurdles.
The ECHO Charter School first launched its innovative, school-based approach to childcare last year when it held informal conversations between teachers and administrative staff.
Eventually, the group visited childcare centers in the region and learned about other approaches taken by neighboring communities.
The shortage of childcare options impacts the whole region, and, not surprisingly, many communities have joined the effort in finding a solution.
