Emergency Childcare

The Illinois Governor’s Office of Early Childhood Development put out the following statement: "Per Governor Pritzker’s Executive Order on Friday, March 20, 2020, all child care programs across the state were ordered to close. Where possible, children should be kept at home. However, we know that is not an option for some of our essential workers, and we are working with DCFS, DHS, and partners throughout the state to develop child care options for these families." To view the Governor’s Office of Early Childhood Development web page and find childcare (essential workers only), click here.
