Two virtual town meetings have been scheduled to support and inform Iowa’s Child Care Task Force, Gov. Kim Reynolds announced. The task force was created by executive order on March 10 to develop a comprehensive strategy to address the child care shortage and barriers to child care in Iowa. As part of this effort, the task force wants to hear directly from parents and child care providers. “No comprehensive strategy to address child care would be complete without direct input from parents and child care providers,” Reynolds said in a news release. The first Virtual Town Hall meeting will be held on May 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. for parents with children in child care. The second Virtual Town Hall meeting will be held on June 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. for child care providers. To register for either town hall, email Ryan.Capps@governor.iowa.gov with your name, affiliation (if any), and which town hall you are requesting to participate in.
