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.
