Early Childhood Education Leaders Come Together to Combat COVID-19

Acelero Learning Signs Petition, Led by Early Care and Education Consortium (ECEC), to Classify Teachers as Frontline Workers

January 21, 2021

Acelero Learning and the nation’s largest child care providers have joined forces with the Early Care and Education Consortium (ECEC), petitioning state and local regulatory bodies to classify teachers as frontline workers so that they are prioritized to receive the vaccine.

The child care sector has been at the forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic from the very beginning. As the ECEC establishes, “Quality child care is the foundation of our children’s futures and the key to unlocking this nation’s economic recovery. To ensure that America’s families can get back to work, they need care that provides safe and healthy environments for children to learn and grow. The surest path to this result is to make the COVID-19 vaccine available to all child care teachers and staff as soon as possible.”
