COVID-19: OEC’s Response

Last updated May 20, 2020
Wash your hands often! Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you’ve been in public — or cough, sneeze, or blow your nose.

During the COVID-19 emergency, the Office of Early Childhood (OEC) remains focused on keeping children safe and supporting their families and providers. As always, we’re here for you.

We’re working closely with families and child care providers across the state to get them the help they need. And we’ve created a series of targeted, short-term CTCARES programs to offer them emotional, practical, and financial support.

Explore this section of our website to find the help you need during COVID-19. Since the situation is always changing, we’re updating these pages constantly.
