FIND A SUBSTITUTE

The Early Care and Education Substitute Pool is designed to support family child care and child care center providers in their professional development. State funding is currently available for certain allowable activities.

ELIGIBILITY

Providers can request a substitute for any day of the week by completing this form.

All licensed and emergency-licensed child care facilities can access the substitute pool.

All licensed and emergency-licensed child care facilities can access the substitute pool in order to care for children during school closures and Washington State's COVID-19 Emergency Stay-at-Home order. Some examples of activities include sick leave, employees choosing not to work as a COVID precaution, maintaining consistent care (i.e. group consistency with same children and adults), expanding capacity (i.e. serving more children), and supporting sanitizing practices.

Providers can also reach us by calling 206-492-5249 during business hours.

FACILITY CHECKLIST

This checklist will help you think of all the things your substitute will need to be able to locate to be prepared to work in your environment. Spend the first hour providing an orientation to your program, and letting them know where to find all the items on this form. Feel free to add more!

END OF DAY REPORT

Your substitute will leave an End of Day Report for you explaining how the day went. If there is anything specific you want in your report, please request it at your onsite orientation with your substitute.
