Preserving Black Churches And Training Child Care Professionals, This West Virginia Morning

An orange box reads "West Virginia Morning," "May 28, 2024," "Preserving Black Churches and Training Child Care Professionals." The graphic also includes the West Virginia Public Broadcasting logo and URL, wvpublic.org, at the bottom.

On this West Virginia Morning, we dive into the preservation of historic Black churches across the Mountain State and the nation.

Plus, in the latest installment of our series “Now What? A Series on Parenting,” we’ll hear about efforts to train new child care professionals.

West Virginia is facing a shortage of child care providers, but reporter Chris Schulz spoke with Kerri Carte, assistant director for West Virginia University’s Extension’s Family and Community Development, about an apprenticeship program looking to change that.

West Virginia Morning is a production of West Virginia Public Broadcasting, which is solely responsible for its content.

Support for our news bureaus comes from Shepherd University.
