Early Education and Care Reopening Resources

Resources for Reopening

As you prepare for and return to your classroom/early education and care setting, you probably have a lot of questions and concerns about how to make the experience positive and supportive for the children you work with as well as for you and your team. 

The Office of the Child Advocate and UMass Medical have teamed up to put together a series of tip sheets, videos, and other resources for early childhood educators. These include ideas and recommendations based on the best available research as well as input from local early education and mental health experts. 

As part of the National Alliance for the Advancement of Infant Mental Health, we have the privilege of being in partnership and share resources with states all over the country. Our colleagues in other states have been hard at work creating tipsheets and resources to guide reopening efforts.
