Hi. Shu from Hawaii.
Hi. This is Maliha from Dubai, UAE. I run ECE training in this part of the world. Good to be here.
Steven dose that 15 include the teacher? Thank you
Tech Support Jimmy
I'll make sure bring that question up during the Q and A
How do you implement limit sharing of supplies for the children in the classroom?
15 kids includes the teacher. For prek we temporarily allowed a greater ratio of 1 to 10 to 1 to 14 (like nursery schools) to help providers better meet financial viability.
Thank you Steven!
To limit sharing of materials, some teachers have separate bins of materials/toys selected by the child and limit them to those. Playgrounds need to be cleaned between groups of kids. In the classroom do not mix groups.
I am in agreement with childcare providers being at the table for solutions with SAC virtual learning
yes, there needs to be an urgency to solve these issues and equity and equality needs to be the lense of our the solution
We did online and it was wonderful it takes a village. You need families that are onboard and supporting you as a teacher!
yes, training for the caregiver/educators that help with virtual learning
This is exciting news that the school system will provide training to the child care setting. We need that support but not responsible for the delivery of the content.
each state and school district has to buy in to providers getting the training
So do you feel it is unsafe to go back without PPE?
What alternative means of partnerships ( in addition to childcare) are being considered if the number of school agers needing a "place" for distance learning exceeds provider licensed capacity?
yes, awesome clarification of expectations of state, school district, and teacher partnership with childcare and parents
Thank you to all for attending and learning with us! We salute you all for your courageous leadership Be safe. Be healthy. Be strong.
PPE is mandatory!
Thank you for everyone with this information
