Community College Child Care Centers Cope With the Pandemic
Tabitha Whissemore, Community College Daily
The switch to fully online learning during the pandemic has challenged everyone, but student-parents have been hit harder in many ways.
Janette Zuk helps student-parents by acting as a “resource broker” at Northampton Community College, connecting them to financial assistance information, tutoring, resources, and more. Since the pandemic, the requests have become more “anxiety-ridden,” Zuk says, because some parents are now jobless, worrying about child care, and facing health issues.
