Keeping Your Child Safe
During the COVID-19 Pandemic
All children and staff are assessed each morning to determine that they are free from symptoms of COVID-19, other contagious illnesses and that they are well enough to be on-site. Temperature readings are a part of the daily health check for students and staff upon entry. Any person with a temperature reading of 100.4ºF or higher is not permitted to enter the building.
Families are not permitted to enter the building during child drop off and pick up. A team member meets families at our front door to conduct a health check for each child and brings them to their classroom.
All children and staff entering the building must wash their hands after their daily health check is conducted. Throughout the day, all children and staff frequently wash their hands (especially upon entering and leaving the classroom, before and after meals, and outdoor play) and apply hand sanitizer.
In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Children and Family Services Emergency License requirements of classroom sizes no bigger than 12 children each, we have limited our classroom pods to seven or fewer children with two teachers per pod at this time. We have no more than 14 children any given day at our school.
As a licensed child care program, we are always required to have a system in place to keep our program and facility clean. In these times, we have gone above and beyond with our practices. All classrooms complete a daily cleaning checklist and follow all regulation cleaning and sanitation procedures. All common areas are disinfected regularly throughout the day.
