Boston, MA - This afternoon the office of State Representative Timothy Whelan (R-Brewster) announced information that may be helpful to parents, families, and care givers negatively impacted by the announced closure of Cape Cod Child Development. While this is a matter of serious concern for our community, this is also a matter that is still very much fluid and changing. Given the concerns that many of us have in trying to ensure continuity of care and services for impacted children and families, our office has been working with local entities and state partners to assemble and distribute information that we hope will be helpful to those receiving services.
Cape Cod Child Development is actively working with area partners and the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) to identify creative solutions to support continuity of services for families.
Families who receive child care financial assistance from the state:
Cape Cod Child Development’s enrollment department is also able to assist impacted families with transitions: Lorna McElaney, Enrollment Counselor, is available at 508-775-6240 x306 or by email [email protected].
We hope to have more information tomorrow on available options for all of our families on enrolling for care. Our office will also be working with other members of the Cape & Islands Legislative Delegation and appropriate state agencies to help employees of Cape Cod Child Development deal with pending job loss and their search for future employment. We sincerely understand the great concerns for all affected and will be working diligently to help our community and all affected get the information and help you need.
