Early Childhood Coffee & Conversation: When the Bough Breaks, Part Three


February 4, 2022

9:30 AM - 10:30 AM



This third session of When the Bough Breaks hosted by the Boston Foundation will feature the perspective of those closest to the work: childcare providers. Join us to hear about the challenges and temporary solutions facing the workforce during the ongoing pandemic. Guest speakers Laura Perille, President and CEO of Nurtury Early Education, and Binal Patel, Chief Program Officer at Neighborhood Villages, will share perspectives on how centers are managing to survive and retain their valuable staff members. Following their presentations, we will moderate a conversation about the near and long term challenges and solutions facing childcare.

Join the Boston Foundation online on the first Friday of each month for a conversation series that seeks to understand the dimensions of this crisis, what is being done to address it, and where there is still more to do. We welcome your participation as we continue to explore the ways that our organizations, providers and families can innovate and invest in our challenged early education and care system.
