Keeping You Informed

As we work to share the most up to date information and resources with you during this quickly evolving situation, we know the flood of information can be overwhelming and sometimes confusing. 

We have compiled all of our updates, resources, and learning opportunities on this page to help you stay informed and prepared to support children, families, and educators during this challenging time. 




A group of more than a dozen providers and advocates from across Ohio sent recommendations to State administrators offering suggestions on how to assist child care programs in this unprecedented health crisis, with a special emphasis on how we’ll ensure that doctors, nurses, first responders and others like them can be on the job. Early childhood advocates from across the country also signed on to a letter to Congressional leadership requesting significant attention to and investment in the child care and early learning sector as Congress works to craft a third COVID-19 economic relief package.  Both are included below.

We know this pandemic is impacting families, providers, and communities in unprecedented ways.  

As you work to adjust to new challenges and routines, we hope the resources below will be helpful in supporting your children, yourselves, and your families in the coming weeks.

The most up-to-date information on rules and regulations for temporary pandemic child care programs, as well as for updates on procedures for closed programs, visit ODJFS's pandemic child care site.
