We are sending the following on behalf of the Office of Early Learning. Questions should be directed to tina.shockley@doe.k12.de.us. Delaware Stars is not able to provide any additional information or answer questions.

Dear Early Learning Provider:
 
As always, thank you for all that you continue to do for children and families in Delaware. We recognize that the past months have been challenging for a number of reasons and your commitment and passion continues to shine through. As mentioned before, Delaware’s early learning providers are truly heroes.
 
We are pleased to announce that Enhanced Reimbursement for November will be open to all providers, regardless of when you opened. Therefore, if you have vacant seats that you are not receiving payment for (POC or private pay), you are eligible to apply for Enhanced Reimbursement. Applications will be available on 11/15/2020 for eligible providers to submit their information.

Applications can be accessed via the following website: https://coronavirus.delaware.gov/childcare-reimbursement/
 
Unfortunately, we will not be able to consider retroactive payments for prior months and we don’t yet know if we will able to provide Enhanced Reimbursement in December.
 
Once again, thank you for your continued support.
 
Department of Education
