Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update March 16, 2020

March 16, 2020

We wanted to inform you that we had a conference call with the Office of Early Learning (OEL) and the other Early Learning Coalitions around the state late this afternoon. OEL is continuing to work on the statewide response.
 
Here is what we know at this moment:
 
An Executive Order from the Governor is being requested to provide flexibility with regard to School Readiness and VPK paid absences. 
 
While OEL shared some specifics of the plan, some details are not finalized. It is our duty and responsibility to share accurate and complete information. With that said, we understand that you may hear from other sources this evening and want to assure you that we will send an update as soon as we receive additional details from the Office of Early Learning.
 
The good news is all of our collective efforts have brought focus on important provider and child care issues across the state.
