36:54
Exclusion for cover-yes, no cases
Lorraine Greer Greer
37:11
exclusion yes, but not covid related. Frustration with parents.
Donna
37:12
No positive cases reported. Sending children home for runny noses then testing negative. Parents are pretty angry.
Erica Brough
37:34
agree tis the season
Christiane Casserly
37:54
thermometers not being effective- not working well in cold environments.
Lorraine Greer Greer
38:14
New flu shot has kiddos with low grade fever.
Linda Tremblay
38:32
Our issue is the payment for missed time. I was confused by the letter that we received yesterday regarding the billing for this.
Erica Brough
38:32
does anyone have a thermometer that works well. ours are not reading right
Alyssa Lavoie
39:03
Many of my families have said their pediatrician seems annoyed when they call for being sent home.
Linda Tremblay
39:19
Our thermometers that we got from the state have been breaking....we received 4 and two are broken already....others don't work in the outside when it's cold out.
Laura Elliott Johnson Alpha-Bits Learning Center
39:53
The Safer at Home 2.0 guidelines differ from the state's Bureau of Infectious Disease Control as to who has to quarantine and for how long after travel. We would love some REAL clarification.
Shannon Harrison
40:17
Is there any data showing runny noses = covid. Have there been any positive cases with runny noses having been a beginning symptom?
Donna
40:44
Shannon, I too would like to see those numbers.
Alyssa Lavoie
40:51
@Shannon, we had a case and it was a runny nose with low grade fever

41:13
No cases at all here
mindy
41:19
no
Patti
41:24
none
Christiane Casserly
41:34
federal paid family leave should help you pay for staff out for covid
sandy
41:42
No cases
Erica Brough
41:55
weather changing isn't helping either. this is the normal season for colds
Donna
41:58
Sending a child home with a runny nose PLUS other symptoms makes sense, but not just the runny nose.
Lindsey Roy
42:17
YES to low enrollment!
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
42:38
It would be helpful if symptoms were grouped so that it is more than 1 symptom...runny nose + fever
Kitty Larochelle
42:46
WE need a standard response from doctors...Sometimes we get a note others (some with illness details others with nothing but cleared to return) other doctors won't issue anything to us. .
Kitty Larochelle
43:01
Low enrollment no
Donna
43:02
yes.
Shannon Harrison
43:03
no
Michelle Bissonnette
43:03

Micki Lowe KinderCare Merrimack
43:10

Linda Tremblay
43:11
low enrollment is a serious understatement....I had over 85 before covid...opened back up with 45 down to 30 now since school started with remote
Christiane Casserly
43:12
enrollment at 55% at RCCC
Erica Brough
43:23
if i had more staff I could enroll more
Mary from Little Lamb Nursery
43:24
yes
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
43:28
low enrollment, but licensed teacher shortage makes it ok for now
MerylFire Tablet
43:28
Super low enrollment. Lower than last summer
S. Tremblay
43:31
low enrollment yes but because we don't have the STAFF to add more kids
Melyssa Paul
43:39
low enrollment-YES but due more to staffing constraints
Melissa’s iPhone
43:41
High stress for owners and Directors!!!!
Lynn Ouellette
43:44
Enrollment - down 15%
Mary from Little Lamb Nursery
43:46
staff shortages too
Lorraine Greer Greer
44:01
high stress with teachers. never see the parents. lots of anxiety and behaviors with children
Laura Elliott Johnson Alpha-Bits Learning Center
44:11
Staff shortage is keeping us at low enrollment
Alyssa Lavoie
44:17
One question I have is Why such a strong recommendation for PPE if wearing PPE won’t stop anyone from needing to be quarantined with a positive case in the classroom?
Melyssa Paul
44:18
HIGH STRESS for directors...afraid of reaching a breaking point...so scary
Joan Izen
44:18
Almost all calls we’re receiving now at PTAN at trauma related!
Mary from Little Lamb Nursery
44:18
yes
Erica Brough
44:18
I feel like no matter what we do for staff and families there is always someone that won't be happy
Micki Lowe KinderCare Merrimack
44:19
Staff stressed - yes
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
44:19
Extra stress is huge...18 hour days at least 5 days a week, working all weekend
MerylFire Tablet
44:20
Stressed and depressed. Yes
Alyssa Lavoie
44:21
Staff stressed - Yes
Kim McKenney
44:23
When staff look for you to have all the answers and you do not - you never want to let them down
Laura Elliott Johnson Alpha-Bits Learning Center
44:24
staff stress--of course!
Linda Tremblay
44:24
Staff stress Yes!
Liz Giza
44:25

Lynn Ouellette
44:42
staff stress - tired...director and owner stressed
Joan Izen
44:49
times are so tough for children, parents and staff.
S. Tremblay
44:54
STAFF STRESS is HUGE!!!! ADMINISTRATION stress levels are so much higher
MerylFire Tablet
45:13
Terrified about finances
Alyssa Lavoie
45:15
Unmute - my experience with dept of health with a positive case
Kim McKenney
45:16
taking on the additional screening and cleaning just keeps layering on to the stress and capacity
Lorraine Greer Greer
45:30
Stress and anxiety with the children leading to large challenging behaviors.
Micki Lowe KinderCare Merrimack
45:35
Administration stress is the worst ever experiences
Linda Tremblay
45:38
We need some better clarification on the letter that we received yesterday regarding billing for kids out due to symptoms. If a parent refuses a test then we cannot bill....??
Linda Tremblay
46:05
@lynn....that one does not like the cold at all....and two out of our four are broken already
Patti
46:29
doctors seem to not want to see sick kids until they've been tested for C 19- THEN they'll listen to their chest or check their ears- so that kids are kept out longer when really, the 10 month old needs antibiotics!
BBLDC Nashua-Sue PFEIFFER
46:39
Lynne please let us know:)
Katelyn Dennis
46:42
def need thermometer that work in cold. i havent found one 💜
Melyssa Paul
46:42
another challenge I have faced is inconsistent guidance, 211 says one thing based on Governor's guidance, then department of health says another thing...I have spoken to the AG's office due to these inconsistency. It makes it extremely hard to make informed decisions when the guidance is not consistent
Patti
46:53
which makes parents so much more upset
Erica Brough
47:08
please let us know about that good working thermometer
Linda Tremblay
47:17
@Melissa paul......this is so very true and so frustrating
Patti
47:33
thermometers do not like the cold morning air!
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
48:25
Alyssa - was it one classroom, or did you entire center have to close down?
Jackie Cowell, Early Learning NH
48:40
from a participant: Elliot pharmacy. Color-coded thermometers, they are great! $60
East Side Learning Center
48:56
Did you charge families that were quarantined
Cellissa Hoyt
50:11
One program shared that they have previously not charged families whose child had to quarantine and beginning Oct 1 they will begin charging as they can't continue to absorb the loss
Jackie Cowell, Early Learning NH
50:32
The color-coded thermometer is made by ADC
Lynn Ouellette
52:11
BBLove Infrared Thermometer
Jackie Cowell, Early Learning NH
52:24
Thanks Lynn!
Erica Brough
53:11
how did your staff all feel about the decisions made ?
Patti
53:34

Early Care and Education Association
55:02
Great Story Alyssa! thank you for sharing! This is very helpful real example info to consider at our meeting in 15 minutes!!
Erica Brough
55:32
that was very helpful...
Lynn Ouellette
56:04
Thanks Alyssa!
Kitty Larochelle
56:55
The third point did not require atest
Katelyn Dennis
57:01
but i emailed them they said siblings count too without test
Lynn Ouellette
57:01
We found the Thermometer on Amazon for $29.99
Lorraine Greer Greer
57:02
did not read it that way
Micki Lowe KinderCare Merrimack
57:15
Are there any specific requirements? ie: excluded per Health Dept or just if they have symptoms and are excluded for 10 days
Kitty Larochelle
57:25
3 C
Patti from Creative Kids Adventures in Grantham
57:33
Honestly, kids are being tested so frequently
Kim McKenney
57:40
Micki I can email to you
Kitty Larochelle
58:02
WE need clarification of 3 C in the letter
MerylFire Tablet
58:45
How do you Bill for any child if they are not registered with the state scholarship program?
Julia's iPad
59:00
I believe it has to be a certain COVID test to qualify
Kitty Larochelle
59:08
It would be nice to have an invoice template
Patti from Creative Kids Adventures in Grantham
59:11
substitutes?
Cellissa Hoyt
59:13
The DHHS letter about this specifies how to set up to receive payment
Laura Elliott Johnson Alpha-Bits Learning Center
59:35
If we could only find qualified substitutes/floaters...
Melissa’s iPhone
01:00:45
I’m wondering what people are doing if everyone is already in the classrooms and there is no one else to cover if a staff needed to be out due to COVID. are you closing classrooms?
Erica Brough
01:00:48
and most of our staff right now don't need those hours of professional dev.
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
01:00:57
Absolutely!
Erica Brough
01:01:12
yes! my cook is amazing and would be willing to cover but can't

Maybe PD should be differed for a while instead of stressing the system. Support the hiring and rewarding of current staff.

can’t agree more support for staff and director
Lindsey Roy

Financial support for staff would be HUGE. The staff take the brunt of EVERYTHING and it would be so helpful to have a little financial backing to help them out.

Our staff was SOOO appreciative when we could offer them hazard pay.

I don’t see the poll
Kim McKenney

There goes the workforce!
Lynn Ouellette

I think it would be great to offer hazard pay and we need staff but I also think pd is important.
Erica Brough
01:06:17
it is so much more work for everyone I do feel like the hazard pay is needed

There is never any talk about helping childcare by the governor any more. It's as if we don't exist or count anymore.

childcare makes the world go round.... like marti ilg always used to say
Christiane Casserly
01:09:44
We should be protected from price gouging of essential supplies to stay safe and healthy.
Melissa’s iPhone
01:10:24
Because this is not talked about I feel parents are not aware that we have a child care crisis!
Erica Brough
01:10:50
and what happens to our workforce who have kids when schools go remote again if they do
Erica Brough
01:10:57
full remote I should say
Linda Tremblay
01:11:09
I have senator Jeanne Shaheen coming to our center tomorrow ......anyone have anything they want me to share to help advocate for our programs
Lorraine Greer Greer
01:11:14
Agreed. Parents, publics schools and others are not aware of our child care issues.
Christiane Casserly
01:12:13
Childcare has operated so safely we have had no large outbreaks since day one, unlike other systems that have reopened!

Everyone needs child care, even if you do not have a small child! If your mechanic can't get his child to preschool, your car does not get fixed!

I thought that you were only charged if you wanted the rapid test. All regular testing should be free, at least until the end of Sept.
Alyssa Lavoie
01:16:28
There are rapid testing sites in Fitchburg & Littleton, MA but it is $180 out of pocket cost right now
Cellissa Hoyt
01:17:22
We are hearing health insurance is declining coverage because the test is not medically necessary
Patti from Creative Kids Adventures in Grantham
01:17:34
doctors ARE ordering tests before they're willing to see a potentially sick child
Kathy Belanger, Ages & Stages, Hampstead
01:17:39
Can't we ask for a document to join symptoms together - sniffles and low grade fever instead of just sniffles
Lynn Ouellette
01:18:15
Our children have been tested with cold like symptoms
Kim McKenney
01:18:17
Free testing in Manchester Tuesday and Thursday call 668 1547 through September

I had a staff get rapid tested and didn't have to pay

The guidance thus far has been so hard to follow....and even when we get it...it contradicts what is being said from DHHS or other agencies. It's been so frustrating.
Alyssa Lavoie
01:20:31
And they got results back in an hour?

Who exactly is making the guidelines with regards to the runny noses? If it’s Dr. Chan’s office…can we contact them and ask for it to be a dual symptom…..sniffles AND low grade fever. The data does not support that sniffles alone are a symptom of COVID…thanks!
