Affordable Child Care Cooperative for DC Parents

7.10.2014 – Greater Greater Washington – DC’s Cooperative Play Programs for Toddlers Can’t Keep Up With Parent Demand  Kishan Putta, a member of the Dupont Circle ANC, says that he started pushing for an expansion of the program after hearing repeatedly from parents that they didn’t have enough affordable child-care options…  He originally asked DPR to open one additional Co-op location and demonstrated that there would be ample demand for it…  DPR decided to expand the program to 3 new locations…  Putta also wants changes that would enable more low-income parents to participate in the Co-op program…  Putta also has called for additional Co-op locations outside of Northwest DC.  Currently only one location is outside that quadrant: Turkey Thicket in Northeast, which is one of the newly added sites.
