Coronavirus Response Resources for Child Care Providers
We know this is a challenging and uncertain time, and we’re thankful for the essential public service you’re providing. If you are facing challenges and are in need of support, please see our list of resources below. As always, don’t hesitate to reach out if we can be of assistance.
With COVID cases continuing to rise, we are holding a community meeting to share information, hear your questions and provide some guidance on what we can all do to help keep childcare programs open. There will be representation from various jurisdictions to help address specific concerns in your area. The taskforce is committed in helping you continue providing essential services to children and families during these challenging times.
Child Care Provider Survey
If you are in need of resources for your child care business, please complete the following survey to help our community partners better understand your needs and connect you to local resources that can support you! This information is being collected on behalf of The Family Conservancy, in conjunction with KC Metro’s Community Collaboration and Response to COVID-19 taskforce.
Your local health department is serving as the information provider for all businesses, including child care centers, family child care, group homes and registered providers. Your jurisdiction is based on the lowest level of agency available given the physical address of your business. For example, if you live in Kansas City, MO, you would contact Kansas City, MO Health Department.
If you are unable to obtain health and safety recommendations from your health department, you can refer to our list of resources for best practices.
