Sister Bay Village administrator Zeke Jackson believes more local attention should be focused on child care. For many families, good childcare is hard to find especially in an area where many residents are owners of their own businesses or work uncommon hours. Jackson says it is as much of a lifestyle and workforce issue as it is just finding someone to care for children.
Some childcare facilities such as the Northern Door Children’s Center get no direct government funding, leaving some families relying on child care assistance from the state to afford services.
