Safety Precautions

Please see below for the safety precautions we’re taking this summer.

Safety Precautions

Daily Self-Check
Before drop off, parents will complete a daily self-check at home to confirm their child is symptom-free and able to attend preschool for the day.

Strict Health Policy Guidelines
If teachers notice a child is sick or exhibiting symptoms, parents will be notified promptly and required to pick up their child immediately. This child will be isolated until parents arrive. The campers and teachers will exit the classroom for 15 minutes so sanitizing of the classroom can take place.

Face Coverings
Staff is required to wear face coverings. Children will wear face coverings indoors and when social distancing cannot be maintained outdoors. While we know it may be difficult for children of this age group to maintain social distancing, we have found fun and creative ways to encourage it.

Cleaning and Sanitizing
Gloves are required for staff when assisting children with snacks, administering first aid, and cleaning. No toys from home are allowed.

Classroom cleaning and sanitizing will take place in-between classes. Hand sanitizer will be available in every room and brought with the teachers where ever they go. Frequent hand washing will be encouraged.

Drop Off/Pick Up
Parents, student and siblings will be required to wear face coverings during drop off/pick up. Instead of entering the building, drop off and pick up will take place at exterior doors. Parents will need to accompany their child to sign them in/out each day along with initialing off on the daily self-check list.
