Caring for Our Children and Emergency Child Care for Essential Workers

This article provides recommendations for child care for essential workers including: (1) use of Caring for Our Children: National Health and Safety Performance Standards for guidance on the prevention and management of illness; (2) expansion of paid family leave to extended family members of essential workers so they can stay at home with their children; and (3) compensation of all early childhood educators, providing higher hazard pay for those doing emergency child care.
