New Coronavirus Precautions in Effect

Keeping Safe with New Coronavirus Health and Safety Procedures

In this challenging time, as always, we’re here to support our community and provide families peace of mind. It starts with following CDC guidance to maintain a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. It has been our honor to serve essential and critical workers, and we want to share the same stability, reliability, and certainty with all families. We want to help children move forward in their school readiness journey, including school-age students preparing for the next school year.

Watch your child for any signs of illness

If you see any sign of illness consistent with symptoms of COVID-19, particularly fever, cough, or shortness of breath, call your healthcare provider and keep your child at home and away from others as much as possible.

Stay home if sick​

If you or your child has been sick, we ask that the ill person stay home until they’ve been symptom-free without medication for at least 72 hours. Classrooms will be open to well individuals only.

Daily health screenings and temperature checks

Persons who have a fever of 100.40 (38.00C) or any of the following symptoms will not be admitted to the facility:

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Chills

  • Muscle pain

  • Sore throat

  • Gastrointestinal symptoms (ie: nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea)

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • New or unexplained rash​

Same person drop-off and pick-up

Families are asked to assign one family member for drop off and pick up to minimize exposure to multiple people.

Restricted classroom access

To minimize potential exposure risks, we ask that families not bring siblings into other classrooms. Instead, check in with a staff member in the lobby. Staff will happily keep an eye on your oldest child while you drop-off or pick-up the younger one from their room.

Adults entering facility must wear a face covering

The CDC recommends that adults should wear a cloth face covering over their nose and mouth when in public settings to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in addition to (not instead of) social distancing, frequent handwashing, and other everyday preventive actions. A cloth face covering is not intended to protect the wearer, but may prevent the spread of the virus from the wearer to others. This would be especially important in the event that someone is infected but does not have symptoms.

ADULTS must to use hand sanitizer

Hand sanitizer is conveniently located in the lobby next to the sign-in computer. We ask that ADULTS immediately sanitize their hands upon entering the facility and limit their contact with surfaces. Please not use sanitizer on children, as our supply is extremely limited at this time.

Children must wash their hands upon arrival

DCYF regulations require children to wash their hands when they arrive at the center. We ask that parents assist their children with this task as part of their morning drop-off routine. We've posted guidelines in each classroom next to all hand washing sinks for your convenience.

Social distancing

As much as we love a good hug, right now might not be the best time. We ask that parents be respectful to the safety of others and try to observe appropriate social distancing guidelines whenever possible. To minimize potential exposure, cross-contact between children and staff in other classrooms will be avoided.

Cleaning, Disinfecting and Sanitizing

Cleaning and disinfecting are part of a broad approach to preventing the spread of infectious disease. Therefore, our center follows stringent cleaning and disinfecting procedures established by the CDC and local health authorities. Surfaces and objects that are touched often, such as tables, countertops, doorknobs, computer keyboards, hands-on learning items, faucet handles, phones, and toys will be regularly cleaned, sanitized, disinfected and rotated throughout the day. We are also limiting the use of play equipment and other materials that are difficult to clean until public health restrictions have been lifted.
