Daycares have continued to stay open throughout the quarantine, but many parents have opted to keep their children at home. When Connecticut starts to open up this week and more parents head back to work, many will need childcare. This hour, how are daycares taking care of kids in a pandemic? 

Later, going to camp can be the highlight of any child’s summer. How will Connecticut summer camps operate this season? Coming up, Beth Bye, the state’s Early Childhood Commissioner joins us. What questions do you have about sending your child to daycare or summer camp? We want to hear from you.
