COVID-19 Best Practices for Child Care

To keep child care providers informed on the latest best practices for keeping children, staff, and families safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pennsylvania Key created a webpage that highlights recommended best practices. As of September 8, the page includes:

    • activities that can make children feel more comfortable with wearing a face mask,
    • guidance regarding the use of face masks in early childhood education programs,
    • printable flyers in English and Spanish that you can display in your program,
    • tips on how to select, wear, clean, dry, and store face masks,
    • tip sheets that answer frequently asked questions about wearing a mask in child care settings,
    • and more.
