Child care worker shortage in Door County

There is a shortage of child care workers in Door County and across the state of Wisconsin. Childcare is often a big expense for families and many cannot afford to pay a premium price. Karen Corekin-DeLaMer, the Education and Community Relationship Coordinator at Northern Door Children's Center in Sister Bay, says the NDCC tries to keep their childcare services affordable to families. This means, like most childcare centers, they can't afford to pay someone a higher wage, even though all licensed childcare workers must have a four-year degree in Early Childhood Education. Corekin-DeLaMer says the Northern Door Children's Center is lucky they now have a full staff but the process to get there was a long one.



Corekin-DeLaMar added that many childcare centers are doing great work in the community and workers deserve to be paid a living wage.
