Community Members Encouraged to Get Certified for Work at New Day Care Center
By Joe Morey
The construction schedule for the new Day Care Center under the CARES Act funding is moving forward and set to begin on July 1. The planners, Booki Weilgot and Brian Bisonette, discussed the project with the LCO Tribal Governing Board (TGB) at their weekly meeting on Monday, June 15.
The new day care will be located at the intersection of the Four Corners area next door to the LCO Early Head Start/Head Start building.
LCO Vice Chairwoman Lorraine Gouge said members of the community who wish to be in child care and work at the new center need to begin the process of getting certified right away.
“We have a lot of good people out there who need the work and who can work in child care,” Gouge stated.
Persons who need to get certified can get certified as quickly as two months. The program has a cost of $1,000 but members may apply for a scholarship to pay for it through the Tribe’s LCO Youth & Education Scholarship Fund.
