Guidance from the Office of Early Childhood The Office of Early Childhood is in close talks with the Governor, the Department of Public Health (DPH), and the state’s Emergency Operation Center during the COVID-19 public health emergency. Based on the Governor's executive order and policy to stay safe and stay at home, note the following and download the attached flyer, Child Care for Essential Workers During the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Child care is available for essential workers.
For all non-essential workers, please keep your children at home.
For those who have to work, look to trusted friends, neighbors, and family members who are not in a high-risk category to fill in care for children.
For essential workers who are not able to do the above, call 2-1-1 for help finding open and available spaces for child care near your work or home.
For healthcare and first responders who are not able to find trusted family or friends for child care please call the 2-1-1 dedicated number 860.756.0864 for support.
We know these are trying times. We also know by working together we will get through this together.
