Emergency childcare facilities remain open

UPDATED: A reminder that emergency childcare facilities remain open to serve children of families designated as COVID-19 Essential Workforce. We’ve heard from a couple folks who were not aware of this. My staff called around yesterday to facilities on the approved EEC list in our area and confirmed that the following have openings:

• Bright Ideas Childcare – 112 Hedges Pond Rd, Plymouth – 1 child today/ 29 capacity

• Suzette Connelly – Home Child Care – 47 Maple St., Whitman – 0 children today/ 8 capacity

• SS YMCA Early Learning Center, 1075 Washington St. (Rte. 53) – 28 children today/ 40 capacity

• SS YMCA State St. Learning Center, 79 Coddington St., N. Quincy- 7 children/ 40 capacity

• Boys and Girls Club, 9 Resnik Rd. Plymouth – 4 children today/ 40 capacity (ages 6-13)

• Ponds Child Care Center – Pauline Murphy – 133 Raymond Rd., Plymouth – 4 children today/ 40 capacity
