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 your school administration if you have any questions. Last updated 6/4/2020.
Staff members wear facial coverings while caring for children. Guidance regarding children wearing facial coverings is evolving and we will update parents accordingly.
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.
Staff members are the only adults permitted to enter the building. Pick up and drop off take place outside the facility. Seating areas are spaced a minimum of 6 feet apart and swimming and field trips are suspended.
Meal safety varies by state and may involve serving individual portions instead of family style or requiring that food be brought
Where applicable, during preschool naptimes, mats are placed head to toe, not face to face. Each child’s bedding is stored separately and sent home for washing periodically.
We continue our focus on handwashing and disinfecting throughout the day. Staff will wear disposable gloves for serving food, changing diapers/toileting, etc.
