COVID-19 Resource Spotlight
Contracts and policies are not only a licensing requirement, they are also a sign that you have put time and effort into deciding how you will care for children and operate your business. It is a good practice to review your contracts and policies each year and when changes, such as a declaration of a health emergency, occur. The Child Care Aware® Start-Up Team has created guidance on Contracts and Policies During a Public Health Emergency. To get this resource and many more about COVID-19 and child care, visit our website.
