Family child care (FCC), COVID 19, and care for school-age children in Georgia

When schools reopen in the fall, what are the implications for Family Child Care (FCC)? In an ordinary year, it means school age children who attended full time return to school and the provider looks for younger children to fill those spots. In 2020, there is a world of unknowns for parents, school systems, and FCC providers and it revolves around COVID 19. Beginning in early summer, the Professional Family Child Care Alliance of Georgia (PFCCAG) thru its committee, the COVID 19 FCC Crisis Management Team (CM Team), began hearing from providers receiving calls from parents exploring whether the provider would be willing to: care for their child when schools reopened, offer supervision and support for their child who was in virtual school, or offer home school as part of the FCC program. The CM Team created a survey to better understand what was happening. To get a quick response, the survey was distributed by word of mouth and was conducted from July 11, 2020 to July 21, 2020. Ninety seven (97) providers responded representing 22 counties. (author abstract)
