Ask Chip Q&A

Question: I would like to know if it’s possible to have day care at Sibley. It is so hard to find child care that matches the time we get out of work. I also think it will be a great benefit for those who have kids. It would also mean less stress for employees about who will pick up their child. Also, it will help with getting to work on time and reduce stress because we would be able to check in on the child’s well-being.

Answer: Thank you for your question. I agree such a service would be of value to our staff and we have been examining this possibility. There are many factors to be considered, including the cost of establishing and maintaining a day care center, space needs, necessary staff and regulatory and licensing requirements. Nevertheless, we are committed to evaluating the feasibility of offering this service. We will keep you updated as we continue our exploration of this possibility. Thanks for a great question!
