DCYF email: Child Care Options for Foster Youth During Pandemic

From DCYF:
Dear Caregivers,

Many parents and caregivers depend on the K-12 system to provide education and care for children ages 5 to 12.

With most students in Washington participating in remote learning this fall, parents and caregivers, including those who are responsible for children in out-of-home care, are left with the challenge of finding safe, stable child care so they can return to work.

During this pandemic, guidance from the Department of Health (DOH) recommends that families who can safely keep children and youth home should continue to do so, but this is not always possible.

The Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) would like to provide caregivers with an overview of child care options available to caregivers under licensing rules.

The fact sheets below will cover:

Licensed child care
Babysitting
Learning Pods
Respite Care
Substitute Care

Accessing Child Care for Children in Out-of-Home Placement During COVID-19

Allowable Child Care for Children in Out-of-Home Placement During COVID-19
