Randolph Times Public Notices 11.9.16

Meeting Notice
The issue of available daycare in Randolph and the surrounding area continues to be a topic of concern for many young families. A school?based daycare is one option, from several, that could help address this concern. Randolph school representatives have done a preliminary study of what a school-based daycare might encompass and will be presenting the initial results. For discussion purposes, a meeting is planned for the evening of Tuesday, Nov. 15th at the elementary school gym at 7:00 p.m. Facility use, staffing, estimated budget, peripheral costs and other issues pertinent to running a school-based daycare will be discussed.
The purpose of the meeting is not to take a position for or against a school-formal decision regarding school-based daycare would still be several months away. The intent of this meeting is to share findings, provide examples of similar daycares, and consider alternative approaches to school-based daycare. In addition, time will be provided to hear opinions from parents, patrons and those community members who have invested considerable energy in trying to meet this community and regional need.
