NDM 2021 Conference – COVID-19 & Provider Challenges: Child Care & Pediatric Health Experiences

Publication Summary:

Equity Challenges Track.

Researchers from ICS present findings on the impacts of COVID-19 on the early childhood sector in South Carolina from surveys with child care providers, pediatricians, educators, and nonprofit leaders. There are clear negative impacts on children and families, including financial instability and mental health; difficulties in conducting “business as usual” in serving families; and considerations for the “new normal” for young children. The session highlights findings specific to child care and pediatric providers as well as trends and potential supports across these sectors. Presented by Megan Carolan, ICS Director of Policy Research.
