Child Care Information

Whatever the age of your child, finding quality child care can be a challenging and emotional experience. You are looking for an arrangement that will work best for your family and one in which you will be confident that your child will receive love and good care.

Overview

The first step in the process of choosing child care is to know what your options are. To begin, the age of your child will impact what kinds of care are available to you. Children are not required to attend school of any kind until they are age six, although most children benefit by at least attending a kindergarten program at age five.

Many families, though, require child care to meet their needs to balance family and work/school responsibilities. Your needs and those of your child will help determine the advantages and disadvantages of each option and will help you decide what is most appropriate for you and your family. You should look at different options and remember that the quality of care varies within each type of arrangement.

In Resa Blatman’s work, her focus lies in current environmental issues, their effect on our landscape and natural resources, and how we perceive the changes in the environment.

 

Dr. Richard Primack’s research is focused on the impact of climate change on plants and animals, conservation biology, and the timing of leaf out and leaf senescence, rare plants and tropical forests.

 

Dr. Aaron Bernstein’s work examines the human health effects of global environmental changes, such as climate change and the loss of biodiversity, with the aim of promoting a deeper understanding of these subjects among students, educators, policy makers, and the public.
