On Monday, March 23rd, we invite you to join us for THREE webinars providing information and support to Ohio's early childhood field in light of the current coronavirus pandemic.
ODJFS Update for Child Care Providers – 12 PM
First, join us at noon to hear more from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services about details surrounding the Governor’s Sunday announcement regarding child care closures later this week, the new temporary pandemic child care licensure, and more.
Provider Panel on Practices for Temporary Pandemic Child Care – 4 PM
Now that Ohio is moving to Temporary Pandemic Child Care licensing during this coronavirus emergency, it is important that we network as a group to share ideas and support each other's efforts. We need to share ideas, concerns, solutions, and strategies to make these emergency centers operate successfully and efficiently. We do not need to reinvent the wheel! Let's come together to figure out the details and share the answers. We are better together.!
We extend a special invitation to all TPCC Center providers to join the webinar, learn new ideas, and share questions and solutions. Can’t join at 4 PM? Don’t worry! This webinar will be recorded and shared afterward.
This webinar will be hosted by the Ohio Association of Child Care Providers.
