S3 Ep4: The Importance of Evansville's Early Childhood Development
About this episode
If you're a parent, grandparent, caretaker or involved with kids in any way, you know Evansville has a child care problem. And the problem is multi-dimensional - lack of child care workers, high prices, high turnover rates, etc. It seems like a reoccurring theme at this point. Almost every guest we have points to early childhood development as the starting point of many issues in our community. So in this episode, we sit down with Aleisha Sheridan, the President and CEO of Building Blocks to talk about the accessibility, affordability and quality of early childhood care. Why is it so important, what are the barriers our city faces, and what can we do about it?
