Parenting comes with a lot of challenges, but many working parents in Chico are being presented with a challenge they weren’t expecting, finding child care.

Parents in Chico are finding themselves on long wait lists for daycares, if they’re even able to get on a waitlist at all.

Tonight on at 5:30 p.m. Action News Now Anchor Megan McMann will take an in-depth look at why quality day care and pre-schools are getting harder and harder to find.
