At the start of every decade, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a count of the people living within the borders of the United States.  The results are used to determine everything from the number of elected representatives to a community's grant application for broadband access.  To help with this endeavor, Nebraska Extension is partnering with the Census Bureau to promote census data collection.  Visit https://extension.unl.edu/2020-census/  to learn how we can do our part.  Outreach materials are available at:  https://2020census.gov/en/partners/outreach-materials.html

We know quality childcare is important to more than just parents & children in a community. It affects the business owner and fellow employees when affordable, quality childcare is not available. Employees cannot possibly be fully present in their job if their mind is busy worrying about their children’s care and education. That’s why in 2019, The Learning Child team created and launched a brand-new website designed to help families as they search for childcare including the development of checklist that can be customized. We ask you to please share this resource with your communities, friends, family members, and anyone else who may benefit from receiving this information.
