The City: Planned Closure of Elmhurst Hospital Day Care Leaves Parents With Emergency


February 10, 2020

A child care center that’s operated rent-free for a decade at city-run Elmhurst Hospital abruptly announced plans to close — leaving parents and staffers scrambling.

The Little Elms Child Care Center initially told parents last week they had until March 27 to make other arrangements. Amid an uproar, the deadline was extended to June 30.

Parents, some of whom work at the hospital, say they were blindsided. They’re trying to untangle the circumstances behind the impending closure of one of the neighborhood’s few child care options.”
