City of Long Beach to Offer In-Home Child Care
The City of Long Beach's WorkLB Childcare Program will offer free in-home child care to residents impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, officials announced.
Working-class families would be able to schedule online up to 40 hours of free childcare services seven days a week, 24 hours a day, based on a family's care needs, including support for children with disabilities and special needs.
Childcare providers must undergo background checks and COVID-19 health screenings and prevention instruction.
For families without internet access at home, the city announced Skills4Care (S4C), a non-profit organization, will provide support and support to schedule bookings for those families.
The city will also offer free early childhood developmental kits for children from birth to five years to support early development while at home.
