Legislature Works with AHS to Create Child Care Hubs Before School Starts

Last week, the House Human Services Committee and the House Appropriations Committee took testimony from the Agency of Human Services (AHS) and the Department of Children and Families (DCF) on a proposal to create child care “hubs” across the State. The hubs would be designed to ensure that child care is accessible to all school-age students and provide flexibility, as each Vermont school is opening with different in-person and remote learning policies and schedules across the state. AHS is looking at multiple ways to build off the existing child care system including creating approximately 73 hubs using existing after-school providers across the state to meet the need for additional school-age child care during remote learning days. Click for more information and child care resources.
