Child care is important for the learning, health and development of children.
The Public Health Guidance for Communicable Disease (including COVID-19) Management in Child Care Settings was developed to support child care service providers to manage communicable diseases, including COVID-19.
The impacts of COVID-19 and COVID-19 response measures on children's health and development are not yet fully understood.
We know that many children and families struggle with feeling worried or overwhelmed, with so much uncertainty in daily life. It's important for everyone to look after their mental health and well-being. Child Health BC is a provincial organization supporting children's health.
Visit the Child Health BC website for a list of mental health resources for parents and caregivers, children, and staff.
