‘I’m Caring For The Kids of Essential Workers in Compton’

Apr 18, 2020

I’m a licensed quality childcare provider in the wonderful city of Compton, California. I provide teaching and activities that are age and developmentally appropriate for the children in our care, but because of COVID-19, we are only caring for essential workers’ children at this time.

Compton Unified School District closed schools on March 16, and that was when we really started buckling down here, in terms of extra safety and precautions.

Bus drivers, grocery workers, nurses and tax preparers—those are the workers whose children come here to Sanders Family Day Care. Some of the grocery workers’ shifts are now starting even earlier, so we’ve adjusted our times here so that we can work with their schedules. Because without them we all wouldn’t be able to have the supplies and things that we need.
