The start of a school year generally brings so much excitement for families and teachers. But this year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the new school year has brought us uncertainty. This fall many parents are feeling a little unsettling when it comes to send their children to school. Safety is a top priority for them. While many childcare providers are complying with or even enhancing their safety protocols, many parents are still struggling to find and afford safe childcare slots for their children. Safety is a common ground for both parents and providers, yet it is keeping them apart. Arvorie's platform easily connects parents to high-quality providers.
Unfortunately, uncertainty lies ahead of us for the next season too. While lawmakers at Capitol Hill are still debating about the 2nd Stimulus Package, childcare providers keep grappling with how to stay open, safe and afloat. The good news is that both presidential candidates laid out plans to support the childcare industry for the next 4 years.

Arvorie is committed to tackling the childcare affordability crisis by connecting employers and working parents with childcare providers. Learn more about how we make this work.
