Access to affordable, quality child care in rural areas is often difficult to find. However, studies show access to child care is vital for long-term viability of rural communities. K-State Research and Extension child development specialist Bradford Wiles, Pottawatomie County Extension family and consumer sciences agent Erin Tynon and Pottawatomie County Economic Development Corporation executive director Jack Allston are working with a local task force to identify barriers and find solutions that will improve child care options for rural communities.
