Several employers across Dickinson County received a survey asking about their employee’s childcare needs and assessments. The Employer Childcare Survey is the second survey the Dickinson County Childcare Task Force’s has created to explore the needs of childcare in the county. While the survey is still open, the task force has finished analyzing its first round of participants. Performing the majority of the analysis was Courtney Dixon, member of the task force and administrative assistant for the Dickinson County Economic Development Corporation.

“This is everyone’s problem. It’s not a parent’s problem. It’s not just an employee’s problem,” Dixon said. “We’re going to lose workforce. That’s going to affect your business, so let’s figure out a way that we can fix this for our centers and our families in the workforce.”
