Recommendations for the Stabilization and Survival of the Essential Early Care and Education Sector

Summary:

The COVID-19 crisis has revealed how much our nation relies on early care and education services in order for other workforces to function, yet chronic disregard for early educators’ well-being has essentially rendered their needs invisible. The Center for the Study of Child Care Employment has developed a set of 5 recommendations intended to be undertaken together, that help protect the lives of early educators and their communities and prioritize getting financial relief directly to childcare programs and staff. The recommendations are concluded with a series of resources to help stakeholders understand the severity of this crisis.
