Carol Murray, Executive Director of Wimpfheimer Nursery School (WNS) and Infant Toddler Center (ITC); BethAnn Serwatka, Site Director of WNS; and Nicole Bonelli, Site Director of ITC, secured new grant funding from the New York State Office of Children and Family Services’ Child Care Stabilization program. New York State’s Child Care Stabilization Grant 2.0. program recognizes the current care crisis in terms of retention and hiring in the field due to a shortage of early childhood teachers and the competing hourly wages in the service industry.  Grants are awarded to programs that have provided care for children throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Funding will support teacher retention, wages, and professional development.
