Business & Org Toolkit — Child Care

Childcare providers take care of children outside of school through day care, babysitting, and after school programs. The conditions precipitated by COVID-19 have been especially difficult for the 7,000-plus childcare providers in Pennsylvania, resulting in at least 65 permanent closures to date. Businesses have needed to adapt to fluctuating enrollment, falling revenue, increased demands on employees, and new remote learning needs for school-age children, while also retaining quality staff.

The following practices are being implemented by various childcare providers around the county and nation to address COVID-19-related disruptions. These practices may be helpful for childcare providers not currently using them.
