Forum Addresses the Child Care Trilemma

Three of the primary goals of  Early Child Care and Education programs are quality, affordability, and competitive staff compensation. Meeting any one of these goals creates conflicts and/or challenges for meeting the other two.

This is often referred to as the Trilemma of ECE programs.

United Way of Door County hosts the latest in its series of forums addressing child care gaps on Tuesday, Feb. 16, 6-7 pm. Learn more and discuss this issue further with Cindy Trinkner-Peot and Karen Corekin-DeLaMer from Northern Door Children’s Center.
