CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. - The current partial federal government shutdown could force local parents to scramble to find childcare.
Three hundred students in the Head Start program at Oak Grove in Acworth, Little River in Woodstock and the Ralph Bunche Center in Canton will be affected.
Teachers and support staff at those schools are paid with federal dollars.
“I don’t think it’s good. It will cost them (parents) more money. They will have to put them in a daycare program I would think, or stay home from work to take care of them,” parent Colleen Manuel said.
