Childcare Crisis Survey - We want to hear from you!

The childcare crisis in Ashe County is evident. There are currently over 370 children ages 0-12 who need full or part-time care.  We know there isn’t enough care available, but we want to hear from you.  Partnership of Ashe and the Ashe County Childcare Taskforce requests your input regarding the struggles you as a parent have personally experienced or that your company has experienced as a result of this childcare crisis.  Your responses will help us tell the story of our county’s struggles and help drive the work we are doing to create a solution.
