How has your program adjusted due to COVID -19?
In the children and staff’s interest, we have created space in our lobby to complete daily health checks. Each employee and child entering the facility complete a health screening that includes taking of temperature. Any person who registers above 99.9 degrees is excluded. Children and staff exhibiting signs of illness must remain home for 72 hours without symptoms. Upon entering the classrooms, each child must wash their hands for at least 20 seconds with warm water. The children wash their hands before and after going out of doors, eating, and moving from one activity to the next. All staff members do wear masks.
We currently are not permitted to have Non-Essential Visitors to the center. This would include tours of the classrooms. We are offering virtual tours from our lobby so that you may see the classroom in action. While we understand the desire to visit the classroom, we must adhere to the Office of Children and Family Services regulations.
Do children have to wear a mask? The school-aged classroom does wear masks, and Preschool children can wear them as well. Children in the Toddler and Infant classrooms do not wear masks.
Can I have my child attend half-day programs regularly and extend a day when needed?
Yes, we often find parents have meetings that occur at the last second, and your daycare hours can certainly be extended. You will need to call the office to confirm the late pickup.
Can I mix and match half-day and full-day program options for my preschool child?
Yes, you can customize your schedule. We believe that flexibility is important to our clients. We have many families who freelance and will need to change their schedules based upon their current clients.
Do you have a drop-in option for your programs?
At the current time, we are unable to accommodate drop-in registrations due to COVID -19. However, families enrolled may certainly add additional days as needed to their weekly schedule.
Do you operate during non-school days?
Yes, we are closed on New Years’ Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Friday, Christmas Eve and Day, and New Years’ Eve.
