Issues facing employees working in the Baton Rouge community included access to infant/toddler and emergency/backup care, health and safety of children, and lack of stimulating activities in after-school programs. Many parents also expressed a feeling of disconnect from their childŐs school program.

The ABC implemented several programs to address these needs including, Backup/Emergency Care, Health & Safety Training for Family Child Care Providers, Vacation /Holiday Training, trainings for center directors, and Homework Enrichment Training with activity kits for school-age programs.
