The Administration for Children Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) received approval in October 2020 to field a two wave longitudinal COVID Follow-up with early care and education (ECE) provider and workforce samples from the 2019 National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE). Wave 1 data collection is nearly completed, as scheduled. Wave 2 data collection is scheduled to begin in early April, 2021. In general, Wave 1 data and data collection experience confirmed that the design of the COVID Follow-up could be implemented as expected and collect data to inform the research questions as intended. We are proposing (1) minor changes to Wave 2 sampling in response to patterns observed in the Wave 1 collected data, and (2) minor changes to the Wave 2 questionnaires in response to widespread availability of vaccines, the passage of two federal pandemic relief bills that affect the sampled early care and education samples, and additional review of questions that were initially added during the public comment period.
