Supporting families in Region XI AIAN Head Start: Centers’ early responses to the COVID-19 pandemic


In this brief, we use information reported by center directors in June and July 2020 to describe how children’s centers adjusted their communications and services with families during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. We first describe the strategies that children’s centers used to communicate with families. We then examine the needs that families reported to center staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, and explore whether children’s centers provided supports that correspond with those needs, on average. Finally, we discuss how the services and referrals that children’s centers provided to children and families changed during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. (author abstract)
