The PacMtn Workforce Development Council and the Thurston County Chamber of Commerce announced in a press release this week that they have developed an online tool kit seeking to help working parents.

According to the release, the tool kit shares best practices on how business leaders in the community can support employees needing affordable childcare.

The tool kit, now publicly available, provides local and national statistics and trends and lays out different ways business owners can effectively address childcare support, the release states.

The tool kit, Coloring Outside the Lines, is now available as a free PDF online.
