COVID-19 - Information for Providers

Share Your Story

The Local Planning Council (LPC) of Nevada County is working to assess the needs of early learning programs amidst this ever changing crisis to better support your health and wellbeing, as well as that of the families you serve.

If you are facing financial and/or health impacts from the spread of the coronavirus, up to and including the closure of your program, please complete this survey and share your story here.

The more we know, the more we can tell Congress, the media, and our policymakers about what's happening and what's needed to protect our nation's supply of child care programs and best serve children and families.

Thank you for taking the time to participate.
