Who can see your viewing activity?
How many confirmed cases of Covid have we had in Marin County over the last year in preschool ages (3-5)? Birth to 5?
Thank you child care providers!!!!
You are the superhero’s (who don’t always wear your capes) <3 Thank you
Hooray for all the strong, brave and dedicated child care providers in Marin! Thank you from First 5 Marin Children and Families Commission!
From Marcela at Tamalpais Preschool, Thank you to MC3 for your support and to everyone who worked hard to continue providing childcare for our kids. Genevieve great work!!! You and so many almost never closed. You inspire us!
THANK YOU DONNA for your voice in advocating for us childcare providers!!
Providers and advocates can address the Board of Supervisors directly by speaking during “public comments” at the beginning of board meetings on Tuesday mornings at 9 am. (city councils also!)
There is a good deal of interest in investing in support for child, family and provider trauma support and training. Will definitely lift this up.
So do we plan for a Fall that isn’t restricted by cohort size, or is there a chance we will be restricted again if the county goes to a higher level - red or purple?
yes Laurel, at this point you can plan for Fall with no restrictions in cohort size
however, if we do go back to purple, the stricter cohort size will once again be enforced
Can you please put the PIN link to the cohort sizes.
cohort size is important, but also being able to combine our classes in the afternoon when we have limited children and need to come together in aftercare. Do we have any information about that? Not just cohort sizes, but do we have to have cohorts at all or keep kids separated?
Great information, Aideen. Thank you and MC3 for all your amazing work and advocacy this past year!
Good question Marcela. Can we mix cohorts now, before the new school year?
Lori, we are still working on that question. Public Health said they would be releasing new guidance by the end of the week.
Thank you Michelle, we’ll be keeping our eye open!
Thank you Michele!!!
Amen to that!
I have NEVER had so much cost in my child care! From PPE to moving child care outdoors… :(
Yes! Financially sound is the key
La Tanya, you need to be speaking to all law makers and representatives in Sacramento!

Bless your strength La Tanya. It has been so challenging for FCCs and all. Thank you for all you do!
directors and other program organizers have found ourselves doing many roles to support our programs. We are jumping hoops constantly. It’s hard, but hang in there. It will get better It has to!
Love you all!!
It’s been a very long year —
You are a warrior! Love and blessings to you
Thank you so much for sharing!! We are all feeling the same way.
We are all feeling like you and we are in this together!
Thank you for sharing sister La Tanya!
Thanks to all the presenter!!!
I would love for there to be some talk therapy support for directors and teachers. If there is a way that some of that money could go to centers earmarked specifically for this it would be SOOOO helpful.
Thank you to all the presenters! Thank you MC3
Thank you, LaTanya, Ruth Ann and Monique for giving me so much energy to get in the fight for money for you all.
