City of Mountain View and Children's Creative Learning Center need to return to the negotiating table

Original post made by Anett Gyurak, Rengstorff Park, on Oct 20, 2013

Quality day care is essential to every community. Mountain View City Council members are scheduled to cast a vote on Oct 22, 2013 about whether to return to the negotiating table with Children’s Creative Learning Center (CCLC) or to transfer ownership to a little known Belmont company, Community Gatepath, to run the city’s only NAEYC accredited day care centers. If the vote goes through, Community Gatepath promises to enroll 30% low income residents (as opposed to the current 7%) -- an enrollment approach that the company has no expertise or track record in.

Completely agree and am very concerned by these proposed changes, along with all of the other CCLC parents I've spoken to. I plan on attending the Tues council meeting as well on Tuesday. Thank you for taking the time to post this so others understand the implications as well.
