Arlington Heights Surveys Companies to Guage Workers' Child-Care Needs

Call it the question that's launching a thousand queries.

Arlington Heights business and civic leaders want to know about child-care needs in town, and they are preparing a survey they hope will tell them how big a problem it is for employers and employees alike.

Based in part on a similar poll conducted last year in Rolling Meadows, the survey will be mailed this fall to members of the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce and other businesses.

"The Rolling Meadows survey showed a great need in that community," Trustee Frank Guagliardo said. "I believe the reaction will be the same in our community."

The survey is a starting point to determine first, whether there is a need, and second, the size and nature of that need, said Dee Bigham, the chamber's executive director.

For example, she said, is child care the issue, or affordable child care?

"When you gather around the table, child care is one of those issues that always comes up to examine," Bigham said.

Guagliardo, Bigham and Rick Burke, chairman of the Arlington Economic Alliance, will meet Thursday to prepare a draft of the survey, which is based on a similar questionnaire used last year in Rolling Meadows.

That city's survey, conducted last fall, looked at what the child-care need was, and how widespread it was.
