Child Care Is Infrastructure [theatlantic.com]

By Helen Lewis of The Atlantic, June 30th, 2020 Boris Johnson loves to dress up—admittedly not an unusual pastime among alumni of Britain’s most exclusive schools. But his specific kink is looking like a builder, in a hard hat and bright high-visibility jacket. Yesterday, the British prime minister filmed a wobbly video that featured himself decked out in Day-Glo yellow at a London school, laying the groundwork for his “new deal” on infrastructure .

Half of all child care sites are currently closed and the ones that remain open do so at great risk to the health of providers and their families.

Kitchen Conversations: How to Talk with Young Children About COVID-19 (cdc.gov)

Parents, family members, and other trusted adults can play an important role to help children make sense of what they see and hear about COVID-19 in a way that is honest, accurate, and minimizes anxiety or fear. Let the kitchen table —either real or virtual— be a safe space...
