Honestly door DROP off has worked so well. Not looking to change mornings but might consider allowing parents in for pick up in Fall. Considering masking change for a bit later
Sally Wuellenweber
01:25:24
Can the survey also include a scale for wages by position for those who are hiring? I am curious to see how the staffing crisis is inflating wages, that providers may or may not actually be able to sustain.
Sally Paquette
01:25:27
We are going to start allowing parents coming in for pick up but we love drop off at the door. We are also stopping taking temperatures. Thinking about what to do with masks.
Mary C
01:25:42
Parents and children masked in my house. No mask outdoors ok
Jessica Cox
01:26:08
We are letting one parent with mask on drop off and pick up their children
Rochester Child Care

I have to leave the meeting now Have a great holiday weekend everyone!
Michelle Bissonnette

Masks will still be worn inside for now and parent will continue to drop off and pick up outside since it has worked out very well for us.

Jennifer Briggs
01:27:18
Sally we have been seeingcenters increase thsalaries again and we are concerned about the long term Sustainabikity
Jennifer Briggs
01:27:28
Sorry for poor typing.
Kathy Belanger
01:27:36
Is everyone still operating in cohorts and not combining in the morning or afternoon? We have 7 classrooms and having 7 teachers at opening and closing is really tough and financially draining...not to mention burning out teachers. Plus we have parents asking for us to go back to our original hours (6:30-6). The OT would be devastating not only to the employees but also to payroll
Meryl Kiddie Konnection
01:27:39
I agree Sally!! I've been asking for this for a while!!
Amy Brooks- ECEA
01:27:46
I hear this question from MANY providers ANd I t
Michael LaRosa
01:28:27
Our last three Indeed ads were posted for full time positions with a $18 per hour rate and we got ZERO responses!!!
Lynn Ouellette
01:28:28
Totally agree Amy!
Kitty Larochelle
01:28:30
WE need to find a way to educate parents on the staffing crisis. There is no way we can increase our hours and pay even more OT!!
Sally Wuellenweber
01:28:42
regional is a great point!
Jennifer Briggs
01:28:50
This was feedback I gave to Julie McConnell as well. 16 an hour for associate teachers on development plans is crazy! Centers will not be able to sustain this financial impact
Meryl Kiddie Konnection
01:29:23
100% agree Jennifer
