Join us as we talk about how to build an actionable emergency preparedness plan with Andrew Roszak, Executive Director of the Institute for Childhood Preparedness. He shares his experience on the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic across the states and best practices on how to build out a plan that works in times of crisis. We also talk about steps to take if your center is also open as an essential service to control the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
In this episode, Kindercare's Dr. Elanna Yalow shares how the childcare giant is navigating this unprecedented situation. We cover everything from safety procedures for centers that are still open at this time, to maintaining a connection with families, as well as what the “new normal” might look like for the industry after lockdown is lifted.
