The New Normal


Find the membership option for you, and join our community today.

Preventing the spread of germs will help protect the teachers and the children. We will take these steps:

  • Temperature Checks at the Door - Drop Offs and Pick Ups should take place outside as much as possible

  • Wash our hands well and often, upon arrival and every hour thereafter. Wash for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

  • Try not to touch our eyes, nose, and mouth, especially if you haven't washed your hands.

  • Regularly clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that the children touch. Currently, no added steps beyond routine cleaning are needed. 

  • Avoid contact with people who are sick. If a child becomes sick while in our care, we will keep them separate from the other children while they wait to be picked up. Encourage all families and teachers to stay home if they get sick.

  • Cover our mouth and nose with a tissue if we sneeze or cough, then throw it out and wash hands. If you don't have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your elbow, not our hands. Make sure that children have access to tissues and no-touch trashcans.

  • Teachers will wear masks.

  • Minimize Shared Materials and Workspaces between children

  • Regular Outdoor Breaks & Activities (Recess!) 

For up-to-date, reliable information about coronavirus (COVID-19) and how schools and programs serving children should prepare, check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC's site also has updated travel information.
