Child care and youth activities

Your child care center, summer camp, or other youth activity is a vital part of life in our state, and an important contributor to the RI economy. To help you reopen as safely as possible, we have established protocols designed to protect you, your staff, and your customers. Here you’ll find all the information you need about anything that is required of, recommended for, and relevant to reopening your child care center, summer camp, or other youth activity. Please read it carefully, familiarize yourself with it, and refer to it whenever necessary. This information may be updated at any time, so check back often.
