Discussion Draft of Health & Safety Guidelines During COVID-19
The following proposed revisions to the Early Learning Division’s Safety Procedures and Guidance for Child Care Facilities and Other Early Care and Education Programs Operating during COVID-19 have been informed by a robust stakeholder engagement effort, which included:
- Provider and parent surveys that yielded over 400 and 3,000 responses, respectively;
- Multiple input sessions with large groups of child care providers; and
- Small group sessions with culturally specific providers, parents, school districts, and other key stakeholder groups.
The document is organized into 14 sections. Each section includes a summary of key changes from the current version and a summary of stakeholder input and rationale along with the requirements and recommendations for each section.
The Early Learning Division gathered input on sections of the drafted COVID-19 Guidance through a survey, from July 23 to 26.
Thank you to all who participated!
