Childcare during COVID-19

Childcare during such a time of social distancing caused by COVID-19 can be an extremely stressful and difficult situation to navigate. While some parents are staying home and have opted to care for their children themselves, other parents do not have this luxury. With this in mind, the State of Georgia is allowing childcare facilities to remain open during this time, as Governor Kemp has declared them to be essential businesses.

Daycares Remaining Open

While some parents are not sending their children to daycare due to concerns of the virus spreading, other parents have no choice but to do so, as their childcare options are limited. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends daycare centers take certain measures to promote safe and health-conscious practices.

Some of these recommendations include screening families at the door for possible fevers and symptoms related to COVID-19. Additionally, daycare centers have limited classes to self-contained classrooms of 10 or fewer people. In an attempt to limit exposure of people in their buildings, most daycares are also implementing routine drop-off and pick-up at the front doors as well as staggering these pickup times.

Babysitters and Nannies

It is up to babysitters and nannies to decide whether they want to continue working during the Coronavirus pandemic. Childcare providers have been faced with the dilemma of whether they should continue working and caring for children, as caring for a child is a hands-on effort and makes social distancing near impossible. As a result, some babysitters and nannies have decided to suspend working for the foreseeable future in hopes of reducing exposure to the virus.

Staying Up-to-Date

Childcare options during this time are continuing to become more limited and stressful. Our team will continue to update our site with the changing daycare options related to COVID-19. If you have questions, do not hesitate to reach out to our firm today.
