Diapers Needed

A Child’s Place at Unity House Serves the Littlest Learners

Unity House’s children’s programs and services go back to our founding in 1971. Parents needed childcare and help with children in need of services, like speech therapy and more.  Today, A Child’s Place operates out of multiple sites, offering an array of services to families with children ages 6 weeks to 5 years of age. You can find all the details, including information on openings at their Troy or Albany sites, on their website.

Parents in Need

Some childcare centers will not let a baby on site unless they have the needed diapers. One parent shared the experience of needing to buy diapers at the corner store, where there was considerable mark up. She lacked transportation yet needed to drop her baby at daycare in order to get to work.  Buying diapers on the fly was a challenge. One day, she simply did not have the diapers and the center would not yield on their policy that babies must have enough diapers for the day. The mom ended up staying home and missing work that day. It’s easy to see how this was not ideal for mom, baby, or work.
