“Established networks are proving critical at this time. For example…a northern Virginia home-based child care network…has responded to the crisis with an action plan for providers, enrollment assistance for essential service worker parents, and clear health and safety policies to keep children safe.”
Early care and learning programs that serve small groups of children are a reassuring option for parents who have concerns about health and safety during and after the current crisis. This brief from the Bipartisan Policy Center encourages states to invest in networking strategies for home-based care.
