Tough questions that all parents face include who can I leave my child with when I go to work? Am I doing enough to help my child get on track with learning? And for some families, how can I get my child a good meal today? On this Central Standard we are exploring the challenges of childcare and early education for all parents, including the cost of childcare, how the government affects a child's early education and we highlight some local programs that help families in need.</p><p> Thu, 04 Apr 2013 14:30:39 +0000 Bill Anderson, Matthew Long-Middleton & Claire McInerny 34560 at http://kcur.org Choosing Childcare Social Change Advocate At SOTU http://kcur.org/post/social-change-advocate-sotu <p>One of Kansas City&#39;s early advocates for children living in poverty will be in the audience tonight watching the President&#39;s State of the Union Address, combining the invitation with an opportunity to take her message to Congress.</p><p> Tue, 24 Jan 2012 14:30:40 +0000 Dan Verbeck 11371 at http://kcur.org Social Change Advocate At SOTU
