Child Care and ECEAP During School Closures
Child care centers and most Early Childhood Education & Assistance (ECEAP) classrooms will remain open
Child care and early learning services are critical to allowing parents to continue to work, which has significant public health and social benefits. Additionally, these programs provide necessary supports to families most in need of services.
Compared to schools, child care and early learning settings have lower risks for exposure and spread of COVID-19 because there are typically fewer children in the setting. According to our public health agencies and medical experts, the available evidence from the COVID-19 outbreak has shown that the risk of serious illness to young children is low.
