How are coworking communities responding to local child care challenges?

Child care challenges, caused by the pandemic, are holding back the economic recovery of local communities.

The Washington Post drove the point home about the situation in the United States by saying that, “Nearly a third of the nation’s workforce has children at home, and they’re struggling.

For the last few weeks we’ve seen more and more coworking communities responding to local child care challenges. 

We first shared an update about coworking + child care in the This Week In Coworking summary for week 29.

We’re now looking to write a blog post, or series, to share how coworking communities are stepping in to try and solve the mounting child care challenges affecting their local economies. 

This can be from coworking leaders, to their members and to their wider neighborhoods as a whole.

If you, or your community, are taking steps to tackle these challenges, please share more info below.
