Child Care Summit to Highlight YoungStar & Changes to Child Care Laws

Unity Caucus and Senator Taylor Present Child Care Summit with DCF and Local Officials

(MADISON) Senator Lena C. Taylor (D-Milwaukee) today announced a child care summit to take place Saturday February 27th in Milwaukee. The summit will offer advice ranging from how to open a day care center to questions about receiving micro‐loans. In addition, information about Wisconsin Act 76, the recent changes to the Wisconsin Shaves Program, will be shared and discussed.

The summit’s objective is to offer advice on not only various concerns that might occur in operating a child care center, but also what parents should look for in a child care center. The event seeks to teach individuals the inner workings of an audit and what one must do during the procedure. Questions will also be answered about any possible issues or concerns one might have about child care centers and how to use the proposed YoungStar system.

The Unity Caucus’s Child Care Summit will take place between 9:00 am to 1:00 pm on Saturday February 27th at the Greater New Birth Church on 2207 West Center Street. The Unity Caucus is the collective group of local and state leaders in Milwaukee.
