Group to honor businesses for family-oriented policies

Carroll County Chapter of Mothers & More will present two awards to family-oriented businesses this week.

Cathy's Creative Kids Corner in Carrolltown Center will receive the Business Award for Most Family Friendly Employer at 10 a.m. Tuesday. The award was established to promote businesses that have adopted policies supporting their employees as parents.

Cathy Schroeder, owner of Cathy's Creative Kids Corner, allows her employees to bring their children to work and participate in the daily activities at no charge. She keeps a flexible scheduling policy and helps employees arrange their work hours to fit family needs.

Mothers & More will present its Business Award for Facility to Piney Run Nature Center at 11 a.m. Wednesday. The award recognizes the amenities, conveniences and educational programs that the park offers with families in mind.

Piney Run provides wheelchair- and stroller-accessible areas throughout the park, which is near Eldersburg. Restrooms feature changing tables and space for strollers and wheelchairs.

Nature Center exhibits are designed for all ages. A variety of children's programs are available year-round.

Mothers & More is a nonprofit organization that supports women who have altered their careers to stay at home and care for their children. The group also advocates for the personal needs and interests of women, especially during the active child-raising years.
