"I don't want to get sick!" What New Procedures Will We Need To Adopt?
May 15, 2020 Season 1 Episode 11
Sara Beach

This podcast episode reviews the many health, safety, and sanitation recommendations recently issued by the Centers for Disease Control. These are the current recommendations; ultimately it will be the job of child care centers, Early Head Start and Head Start centers, and public and private preschool programs to meet the guidelines that are adopted by each state. The question is, how will these new practices, material goods, and capacity reductions be funded? This remains to be seen.Operating on the hope that the state and federal government will provide financial resources to enable programs to operate in these new ways, teachers and directors can (and should) begin now, creating their plans for new policies, procedures, procurement, and the organizational systems (such as staffing plans, parent communications, HR). Teachers should access the many free resources available online, for structuring and teaching new classroom routines. This podcast offers some recommendations for how these plans can be developed, and where to access resources.
