Important Notice As Public Schools Reopen in Broward on Oct. 9

Dear Provider,

For child care providers who have been serving School-Age Children for full-time care and helping them with virtual learning: As Broward County Public Schools begin to reopen tomorrow, October 9, please be prepared to be reimbursed at the part-time rate for all children/families planning to return to their brick and mortar schools and are returning to your facility for afterschool care.

For families that are choosing to continue sending their children to your site for full-time care, child care providers will continue to be reimbursed for full-time care. You should continue to change the unit of care from part-time to full-time. The Office of Early Learning has communicated to us that they are not ending this funding for as long as the public school system continues to offer the virtual learning option.  

If you have any questions/concerns, please send them to questions@elcbroward.org. Thank you!
