Press Releases and Responses 

MAAEYC was invited to submit written testimony to the Joint Committee on Education Oversight Hearing

Reopening Early Education 

MAAEYC was invited to present to the MA Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) on May 7, 2020 regarding the guidelines and investments that are needed to start reopening family child care and center-based programs. 

We sent out a survey to the field and collected 861 responses in less than 24 hours. Early educators across the state are concerned about the safety of children, families and themselves above all. Other common themes were being able to find and pay for PPE, paying for sick time and keeping programs financially healthy. 

Below you can read the letter detailing our recommendations.
