The health and safety of our children and families is always our highest priority. To mitigate the risks of COVID-19 while children are in our care, we have adopted additional health and safety measures based on CDC guidelines, state and local regulations, and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Given the evolving situation, we will continue to update these protocols as necessary; please contact our office if you have any questions.
Staff members wear facial coverings while caring for children. Parents are required to wear a facial covering while on campus during drop-off and pick-ups. Guidance regarding children wearing facial coverings is evolving and we will update parents accordingly.
All meals, snacks and personal water bottles are brought from home. A
personal placemat is used when eating. Teachers wear gloves when handling food.
We continue our focus on hand washing and disinfecting throughout the day. Staff will wear disposable gloves for serving food, changing diapers/toileting, etc. We have a full-time staff member exclusively disinfecting and cleaning all-day.
Staff members are the only adults permitted to enter classrooms. Teachers will meet parents for children at classroom door. Seating areas are spaced a minimum of 6 feet apart. No special occasions will take place and we will have no guests.
Where applicable, during preschool nap times, mats are placed head to toe, not face to face and in a good distance apart. Each child’s bedding is stored separately and sent home for washing periodically.
We screen temperatures of staff and children and anyone with a temperature of at least 100.4 degrees or showing other signs of illness is not permitted to enter the facility. If a child becomes ill during the day, they will stay in a separate area while awaiting pickup.
