Thank you to Learn & Grow early childhood education programs that are working every day to improve the quality of child care for Alaska’s youngest
children and their families.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many changes for early childhood education programs. Learn & Grow recognizes programs are facing hard business decisions
related to COVID-19 crisis. As a result, we understand programs may not be able to fully participate in Learn & Grow at this time.
You’ve worked hard to achieve your Learn & Grow status.
To honor this work, Learn & Grow announces the following updates to the policies and procedures during the COVID-19 crisis:
- Learn & Grow will extend program deadlines and timelines as needed to support your continued participation.
- Your Learn & Grow status will remain active unless your program permanently closes. That means you will continue to be a Learn & Grow program
throughout this crisis.
- thread staff will be there for you remotely by phone and/or zoom conferencing. Please consult your thread professional
developmental specialist if your program needs assistance with training, renewals, or initial verifications.
As a reminder, all thread trainings are free through the end of June and are available online statewide. Visit thread’s training calendar for available times and topics.
