The ACCA Child Development Center (CDC) was closed from March 16 through March 18 and reopened on March 19 after implementing the new guidance from the Commonwealth of Virginia for childcare centers. Enrollment is sharply down for a number of reasons including the reduced classroom size required to follow the new guidelines. The priority for childcare centers is to serve first-responders and the excellent CDC staff under the leadership of Maria Isabel Ballivan continues to provide much needed services during this pandemic.
