Child Care Aware of America Webinars and Other Resources

We know that all of the legislative changes that have happened over the past few weeks can be confusing, and there is a lot of information to wade through before you get the answers you need to be able to take care of your business. We want to help you navigate through the bills and executive orders as much as we can. For now, the best way we can assist you is by sharing resources.

You will find two upcoming webinars from Child Care Aware of America below. Please, also visit the COVID-19 Updates page on the Coalition website for downloadable resources. As always, submit any questions you have through the Redline.

Friday, April 3, 1:15-2:15 p.m. CST

In this first part of this webinar series, we are looking at how Vermont and Minnesota are responding to the coronavirus pandemic — specifically, what decisions they're making about child care. We'll look at their response around emergency care, supporting families with critical child care decisions, child care subsidies and supporting providers to care for essential workers' children. You'll hear from Aly Richards, CEO of Let’s Grow Kids and Ann McCully, Executive Director at Child Care Aware of Minnesota.
We exist to grow healthy children, parents, and the relationship between them.
