The rapidly changing circumstances around the spread and containment efforts of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) mean the best sources of information for families with children in early learning services are the regularly updated bulletins coming from government sources. 

The Australian Department of Health has developed a collection of resources for the general public, health professionals and industry about coronavirus (COVID-19), including translated resources. These resources include specific guidance for early learning centres and families with children in early learning services and you can access them here.

To access general information from the Department of Health about COVID-19, including daily updates, latest news, current figures, travel advice and contact details and Frequently Asked Questions click here.

The Australian Department of Education, Skills and Employment has released a guidance sheet on financial support available to families affected by COVID-19 and you can access this information sheet here.

For information on the global situation visit the World Health Organisation website.

For parents worried about how well their children understand the situation the Conversation published an article on how to talk to kids about COVID-19, which you can view here, while  UNICEF has eight tips for parents on how to comfort and protect your children.
