@BBLDC the school guidance is routine screening daily but does not dictate taking temperatures, just a symptom screen or getting parent initials. My understanding is that this is similar to what public schools are doing.

Thanks Mimi.

I have offered all my assistant teachers CDA classes onsite. Due to the waivers I thought that this would be a good time to get everyone credentialed. At MCELC we pay for all books and materials, we will also pay the credentialing fees. The staff attend the classes here 2 Saturdays a month. We still are short staffed but I believe that offering the classes free of charge helps.Judy Ann Watkins, Monadnock Community Early Learning Center

Current trend is families getting fed up with Covid guidelines, had our first exposure in our building. As far as staffing goes for us we are in good shape. We have 3 groups, infants, 1-2 and 2-3 year olds. We have 24 children total and 8 main staff with 3 college students and 4 high school students to fill gaps.

If we do not have a tuition increase how do we afford to keep our doors open, but we cannot put this on the back of parents. Staff are working overtime, parents are fed up with policies on having symptoms and not attending.

Is a CDA equal to a degree
Jessica Emond
01:08:14
You can be a lead teacher in NH with a CDA but at this time it cannot be transferred to credits.

I did 2nd draw. Not sure of third draw
Michelle Dickerson
01:14:33
Are the qualifying requirements the same for child care providers for the PPP?
Donna Massucci BVS
01:14:35
If we had two PPP can we apply for this one

01:14:36
Do you still have to show 20% loss? What about new centers
Christeen Murray - RAYS
01:14:48

Lisa Sargent - Director of ELC

is there a tech support person to turn to? I am not good at computer stuff I am a family childcare provider
Christeen Murray - RAYS
01:16:05
I have a question about the classrooms. We split some classrooms due to COVID
Storybook Hollow
01:16:17
How do youth camps factor in to the new funding?
Lindsey Roy
01:16:19
Very curious about the formula they will be using...
Adrienne H.
01:16:59
Same Question as Michelle: We opened in 2019 and can't show losses since we don't have the whole prior year of data for comparison
Mary C
01:17:23
Is CRRSA available if still not yet reopened?
Lisa
01:17:31
Lisa, I am family child care provider and a recipient of the TEACH scholarship, Id be happy to talk to you.
Alyssa Lavoie
01:17:40
You can compare Q1 2020 to Q2, Q3, or Q4 to show a 25% loss as long as you were open by 2/15/20 I believe
Shelley Vetter
01:18:24
What will the scholarship part play in how much money we are able to receive. Hope it is not a big factor as it does not seem fair for centers that may not be in an area that this is needed or at this time.
Kimberly McKenney
01:19:03
Has anyone receive info yet on this that are multi sites?
Christeen Murray - RAYS
01:19:14
licensed enrollment or current enrollment for the application? We are reduced for COVID protocols

Diane Manning
01:20:02
The TEACH program is trying to encourage Family Child Care Providers to take advantage of this scholarship program.
Diane Hurney
01:20:09
If we missed yesterdays first meeting will they have a recording to watch?
Kathy Belanger
01:20:14
Christeen - I was on the call yesterday. It is current enrollment not licensed capacity
Dover Children's Center
01:20:22
From the discussion yesterday, an application will need to be done for each individual site and it is for current enrollments not licensed enrollment
Donna Massucci BVS
01:20:25
NH Connect keeps asking me for a new password
Danielle Belliveau
01:20:25
Mimi- I've been locked out all week. Tracy Pond is working the issue (as I understand)
Rochester Child Care
01:20:35

Donna Massucci BVS
01:20:42

Melissa Gray
01:21:02

Danielle Belliveau
01:21:30
Child care aware does know that this issue is taking place so hopefully fixed soon
Kathy Belanger
01:21:34
I never got the SALESFORCE email. Now working with 2nd person to resolve the issue
Rochester Child Care
01:21:36
Too bad its so hard to get onto this site from the provider end
Diane Manning
01:21:49
Tracy Pond and our Training and TA Specialists are currently working on this.
Janet Chesley Luddy

Danielle Belliveau
01:22:39
I spoke with Tracy Pond yesterday and they are actively working this issue
Rochester Child Care
01:22:42
You can't do anything without the special log in that is only specific for you- not working well
Laura Mammarelli

Mimi it’s not just you!
Eileen

We are struggling with NH Connections!
cblanchette
01:23:15
Child Care Aware has been trying to help me but I still have problems with my password getting rejected. I am getting anxious that I cannot get any of the Covid funding
cblanchette
01:24:03
Is there another avenue to get the funding?
Rochester Child Care
01:24:18
have not received an email from Sales force .. either
Mimi O'Connor
01:25:02
No follow up sales force email here either. Hnag in there everyone! It will all work out!
Pilgrim Zoom
01:25:29
nope...no email yet. glad it is not just me
S. Tremblay
01:25:48
From my understanding you only get the SalesForce email if you didn't previously log onto the NH Connections website
Kathy Belanger
01:26:07
Now that we are in 2021, is the 10 day per child cap returned to 0
Janell Davis
01:26:10
got that. it’s encrypted and I. can’t get it to my billing person
Gina Walsh
01:26:39
Is it still only 10 days per child total?
iPad
01:26:53
my email was not connected to the Nh connections for some reason, that’s why I did not get the link
Melissa
01:27:47
Got the information. wish we were able to get more than 10 days covered as well as the families that choose to keep the child home for the 10 days rather than get tested.
iPad
01:27:50
childcare aware took my email and still I have no email from sales force two days later.
Topher Bishop - SDYMCA Child Care
01:27:58
i'm confused- do these funds go to us, or to the families? we were under the impression that the monies had to go to those families
Kimberly McKenney
01:28:36
I am hoping that be billing by month the turn around time for reimbursement back to centers is quicker. We just received monies owed from October/November
Melissa
01:28:59
We have an entire classroom that is using at least 6 days this week and one family that has used up all 10 already.
Alyssa Lavoie
01:29:17
Topher - if you did not charge the families, you keep the funds to cover the income loss. If you charged the families during their absences, you would reimburse/credit the families what the state returned to you.
Topher Bishop - SDYMCA Child Care
01:29:48
okay, that's how we took it. thank you!
Imagination Inn
01:30:06
Is the email correct? Isn't it ECCP@dhs.nh.gov?? Please confirm?
Melissa
01:30:17
That is how I read it. 10 per person from now until May 2.
S. Tremblay
01:30:29
My understanding is 10 days total as well!!
Adrienne H.
01:30:31
We've already had this issue, child tested positive on day 10 of her quarantine.
Erin Kniphfer, Kid's Culture
01:30:35
I heard it was 10 days per month
Christeen Murray - RAYS
01:30:40
And is this ONLY for scholarship children?
Kimberly McKenney
01:31:05
Our billing office states 10 days now till May
Christeen Murray - RAYS
01:31:13
WOW!!!!!
Kimberly McKenney
01:31:23
So if they are out once that's it
S. Tremblay
01:31:29
There are different tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet one for scholarship children and one for non-scholarship children
Lisa Simpson
01:31:48
