Do you have employees whose work performance and attendance is being affected by childcare issues at home?  Parents with school aged children are dealing with scheduling issues these days (during COVID pandemic) when remote learning is being conducted with students at home. While parents need to be at work, some can’t because they can’t leave their young children by themselves.  CLICK HERE to learn more about a reduced cost program for school aged children being offered by the Henderson Family YMCA.
