March Program - Child Care Concerns. It is a very difficult and stressful task for parents to locate good, reliable, and affordable childcare when parents must work to support their families. We have invited panelists Norma Bergman and Anne Shear from the Family Enrichment Network, Laurie Bowen from Mom's House, Amanda Kushner, a parent and also EISEP Case Manager at Tioga Opportunities and Darlene Weidman, Director of Employment and Transitional Services, Tioga County DSS to discuss the barriers facing families who must rely upon childcare. Members of the Early Childhood Education program at BCC will be in attendance to assist with a quiet arts and crafts area for young children who may attend with their caregivers. If you wish to attend and will be bringing a child/children, please contact Sue Ruff at so that we will be able to accommodate your needs.
