Parents are currently trying to figure out what the safest options are if they have to send their children back to school or to a childcare center.

A is for ask, meaning ask a lot of questions. Ask if the center has implemented all of the CDC guidelines to protect against COVID-19. What is the drop off policy? Are parents allowed into the center?
B is for be informed. Check out the center’s record and their licenses.
C is for count. What is the child-to-teacher ratio?
