As we all navigate the effects of COVID-19 on our daily lives, it is important for babies, toddlers and young
children that child-centeredness continues to be the basis for how we develop our response for children. When
all the child’s most important adults—parents and childminders—work together, going to childcare can be
a positive experience for everyone.
It is important that we all continue to work very hard to ensure safe operating of Early Learning and Care (ELC)
and School-Age Childcare (SAC) for childminders, children and their families.
