There's no national data on vaccination rates among early childhood education staff. However, a survey conducted in March by the CDC indicated that vaccination rates among preschool workers mirrored that of the general adult population, with younger respondents more likely to express hesitancy, according to Nikki Garro, director of early childhood health programs at Child Care Aware of America.
What protocols will parents have to follow?
The protocols vary by locale and institution. However, the CDC recommends moving school pickup and drop-off to outside building as a means to limit COVID-19 transmission. This practice is very common, according to Garro, of Child Care Aware.
