West AlabamaWorks! launches childcare database

West AlabamaWorks! launched the West Alabama Childcare Database Tuesday to assist working parents as they find childcare solutions during COVID-19.

“Parents are facing issues they haven’t had to deal with before, as they try to find a safe place for their children to learn while they’re at work. Our industry partners approached us with this issue, as it affects their workforce, so we developed a solution,” said Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama COO and West Alabama Works Executive Director Donny Jones.

Tuscaloosa City Schools and Greene County Schools are starting the school year virtually so working parents are faced with finding childcare. Several West Alabama organizations are assisting with virtual learning, allowing parents to continue working and helping students stay on track. These opportunities will help industries operate normally, keeping West Alabama’s economy strong.

View the database via westalabamaworks.com/childcare. Childcare organizations can submit their profile here.
