Dear Early Childhood Community,
Amidst many temporary closings, the Colorado Emergency Child Care Collaborative is a new effort to match available child care options to the following critical personnel during our communities’ time of need.
If you know of a parent who might qualify for emergency care; if your licensed child care program is interested in participating; or if you know of teachers who may be eligible to participate, please complete the corresponding survey linked below.
Here are the parent, program, and early childhood teacher surveys:
Please visit covidchildcarecolorado.com for more complete information.
We don’t yet know the extent of the need in Summit County, but through this effort partners across the state will try to match need with local capacity.
Please know that if you have any questions during this challenging time, we are here to help in any we can. We thank you for your continued partnership as we, as a community, seek to support and protect each other.
