Region II Head Start's Response to the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic
Updated: Aug 10, 2020
During this very difficult time, we're committed to keeping everyone in our Region II Head Start family safe. We know there is a lot of conflicting information out there about the COVID-19 coronavirus, and we want to ensure that you're getting the correct information. That's why we partnered with the Institute for Childhood Preparedness to bring you resources, actionable tips, and online training courses to respond to and recover from the coronavirus.
You can trust the information you're getting from the Institute; their Executive Director, Andrew Roszak, has over 20 years of pandemic preparedness experience at the local, state, and federal levels. We have vetted the Institute's online courses, as well as spoken to those who have already taken the online training courses, and the response has been very positive. Participants say that the online courses are very helpful, the instructors are knowledgeable, and the courses provide great resources to the early childhood community.
