Any Time is 3Ts Time #1

Did you know…every word you say builds your child’s brain! Research shows that children do better in school when their parents talk and interact with them from birth. That’s why we’re launching the Any Time is 3Ts Time campaign. Make the most of the time you’re spending with your child by using the 3Ts. Tune In: Be in the moment. Talk More: Use a wide variety of words. Take Turns: Engage your child in conversation. To learn more about the 3Ts, sign up at the3Ts.org. It’s free! Also available in Spanish at las3Cs.org! #AnyTimeIs3TsTime #3TsFlorida #PNCGrowUpGreat

Provider Resources for Reopening (Part 2)

As the state progresses through the next phases of reopening, the demand for childcare is likely to increase. As you welcome children back into your centers, there are some ways that you can assure families that you are employing every safeguard possible to keep their little ones well and minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

The ELC has worked with a diverse group of childcare providers from varying segments of early childcare to establish health and safety priorities for reopening centers and for maintaining health standards in ones that have remained open. We collected resources and put together a packet of editable documents that you can personalize for your center to solicit the trust of families and ensure the compliance of staff.  

The attached documents include CDC and DCF guidance for child care providers on general operations; including drop-off and pick-up, screening, and healthy hygiene routines. Also included are templates you can use to notify parents of internal policy changes due to COVID19 and a workplace safety agreement.
