This fact sheet, in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, presents and expounds upon the following child care and early education policymaking principles: 1. The health and safety of children and families, early childhood educators, and the broader community are paramount. 2. Child care centers, family child care homes, and the early childhood workforce must be sustained through this crisis so they can survive economically, remain in business, and reopen afterwards. 3. Children and families need health, nutrition, educational, and economic supports during this time. 4. We must support parents' and caregivers' economic security throughout the crisis.
