In Bend, child care may be harder to find than housing

When Wintress Lovering decided to return to work and started looking for child care for her young daughter in February, she heard the same response from several centers: they were full, but maybe she could try in the fall — of 2019.

Lovering eventually found a program that will take her two children — a preschooler and a first-grader — for four hours, three days a week. It’s enough child care that she’s now able to work part-time from home, but she spent months in a limbo of waiting lists.
