Kenesaw currently has only one licensed in-home child care provider. A recent survey conducted by Communities for Kids – Adams County found 51 children under age 6 in the Kenesaw area currently need child care. Dozens more school-aged children also need before-and-after school care. Many parents leave their children with unlicensed providers, older family members, older siblings, or oftentimes a combination of all of these.
Additionally, Kenesaw Public School does not have any before or after-school programs. This leaves many children going home to an empty house and left unsupervised outside of school hours.
The gap in access to quality child care is felt by our whole community – it’s time to address it.
