I don’t think any of us could have imagined the world we are experiencing today, yet here we are. We, like you, are evolving, learning and coping daily. I can say two things with certainty, I am proud of the resilience and commitment of our many Providers who have remained opened during the Covid-19 outbreak to ensure that parents that are working have access to safe and quality childcare. I am equally proud of our Agencies and their Supervisors, that have also been supportive to parents, Providers and their broader community. Home childcare was deemed an essential service and we have been proud to work with municipalities to open additional spaces for the children of emergency workers and essential workers in many of our Agencies. We thank the many emergency and essential workers (including our Providers) that are enabling our access to food, services and resources that all our families require.
For those that continue to work in essential workplaces, and for those home with their children during this outbreak, we have curated articles and activities that we hope will bring you some inspiration. We understand the challenges that working from home or self-isolation might bring. On the other hand, we have also witnessed many positive impacts including the additional time spent with family and the generosity of members of our communities. We encourage you to follow us on
to see the many inspirational testimonials and heartwarming activities that are being shared.
