Results of May 2020 survey of regulated child care, prekindergarten, and afterschool programs and supports needed to open after COVID-19 closure
The Vermont Department for Children and Families, Child Development Division in partnership with Building Bright Futures, Let’s Grow Kids, Vermont Department of Health, Vermont Agency of Education and Vermont Afterschool surveyed regulated child care, prekindergarten and afterschool programs on their needs to reopen child care programs after an extended closure related to COVID-19. Programs were asked questions about their current operating status, anticipated status if a reopening was allowed, and the supports needed to ensure children, families and their staff are successful in a reopening. Programs were given the current Vermont Department of Health guidance on how to provide child care, which includes information about limited group size to 10 people, and restrictions on shared spaces, along with health screening and more.
