California child care providers are losing their jobs, parents are scrambling to work, take care of their kids and shepherd them through virtual learning — and there’s no more circle time, for now.

There’s a lot to keep track of, whether you’re a parent, caregiver, child care provider or early educator.

Our friends over at KPBS in San Diego are hosting a conversation tonight (Thursday, Sept. 10) at 7 p.m. about COVID-19 and child care. Register to attend the free virtual event here.

Investigative reporter Claire Trageser will moderate the conversation as the panelists unpack the role that child care plays in reopening the economy, how parents and providers have navigated this time, the impact on young children, the future of early education and more.
