"A Day without Child Care"

Based on the movie, A Day without a Mexican, this humorous take on a serious subject was commissioned by our local county office of education.  I got to co-produce it with Rick St. Charles and Matt St. Charles, my husband and son, and act in it along with them and many community members and professionals.  

Here's the summary:
The residents of Humboldt County, California, wake up one day to find that all their child care providers have mysteriously disappeared. The result? A good portion of the workforce has to stay home to take care of their kids! Chaos ensues. A solution is proposed.

This was such a rewarding project to work on, and it received great support from the whole community.   High praise to all the excellent child care providers, teachers, and families who helped make this video so engaging and effective.
