Could a before- and after-school childcare program be coming to Norwalk?

Norwalk City Schools board members and administrators heard a presentation about the independently-run Norwalk Latchkey program at a recent meeting. Licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, the child care program is for kindergartners through fifth-graders.

The proposed Norwalk Latchkey program is a non-profit program that would run independently of Norwalk City Schools. There is no cost to the district, but the parents would pay a fee for their students to participate. Also, there would be paid workers with teaching or care-giving experience.
