Examining anxiety among Minnesota child care providers during COVID-19
We invited Minnesota child care providers to complete a survey in the summer of 2020. Using the Generalized Anxiety Disorder–7 (GAD-7) scale, we asked respondents questions regarding the levels of anxiety they may have been experiencing at that time, as well as other aspects of their experience of the pandemic and program operations. This brief summarizes key findings from this survey. We offer considerations for policymakers who are dedicating federal, state, and local resources to supporting the child care field, including individual providers’ mental health. (author abstract)
