Hello from the Collab, and welcome to the Family Child Care Professionals' Newsletter! This monthly resource is published every first Friday and updated weekly. Look here for information about training opportunities and important dates.
This month the focus has shifted from just coronavirus and Covid-19 to a pandemic just as deadly; racism and inequity. If you're looking for last month's COVID-19 links, they still live on last month's newsletter. Look below for links to important conversations around race.
Check back here often for information and links to resources to help you navigate the pandemic.
