One upside the coronavirus pandemic has shown is the way people pull together to support the health, well-being and stability of their communities. In Thorold, Carol Ford is stepping forward to support frontline workers by offering childcare relief for frontline workers.
The owner of Amma’s Place Child Care, Carol Ford suspended the Thorold-based program on March 17, but she informed MY Thorold today that their service will be re-opening for front-line workers only.
Carol tells us “these are tough times for everyone, but especially for our community’s frontline workers. They not only face health risks every shift they work, they have added demands on their time and energy, and many also have the concern of placing their children with the proper care at this time, as schools and childcares are closed.”

“Placing their children with senior aged relatives means also putting those loved ones at risk. Amma’s Place Home Childcare is offering temporary childcare relief for these families. Having a full roster of families already, and a long waitlist, these services are only available until the pandemic is lifted,” she added.
