  1. Illness Policy
    ⎯ We will not accept sick children. Should your child become ill during their visit, we will notify you to come pick them up.
    ⎯ Due to the nature of our operations as it relates to any pandemic, exclusion and limited exposure to the other children and our staff is very important in preventing the spread of illness in the center.
    ⎯ Symptoms include but are not limited to:
    ○ Cough
    ○ Fever
    ○ Runny nose, nasal congestion
    ○ Sore throat
    ○ Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
    ○ Headache
    ○ Muscle aches
    ○ Feeling unwell/fatigued
    ○ Poor appetite
    ○ Difficulty breathing/shortness of breath
    ⎯ If your child falls ill at the center, we will take the following steps:
    o Staff will utilize PPE
    o Isolate the child in a separate area
    o If the child will tolerate, we will have them wear a surgical mask
    o Perform a temperature check and assess other symptoms
    o Contact family for immediate pick up
  2. Physical Distancing and Healthy Practices 
    ⎯ We have implemented a variety of measures to help us encourage physical distancing and continued healthy practices in our programs. To help limit the possibility of the transmission of the virus, we will be looking at ways of minimizing the movement of children and staff throughout the Junior Lounge. The same staff will be with the same group of children throughout the day. 
  3. ⎯ Physical distancing is understandably a very hard concept for young children to comprehend and abide by. It is difficult, if not impossible to guarantee that this can be maintained throughout your child’s visit. To the best of our ability, we will practice the following:
    ○ Physical distancing for all adults in the building which includes limiting the number of people in the building and physical distancing of 2 meters between staff members.
    ○ Physical distancing for children with no symptoms. We will continue to treat your child as we typically care for a child. Staff will arrange spaces to encourage more separation among children during free play/activities and during snacks/meals.
    ○ Clearly defining play spaces using visual aids such as tape on the floor.
    ○ Staff will have discussions/conversations with the children about the importance of physical distancing and remind the children, as needed, about having their own space, and respecting the space of others. ○ Signs for proper hand washing and proper cough/sneezing procedures are posted in every room as an additional visual aid for reinforcing and reminding children about healthy practices.
    ○ Staff will teach, encourage, and model proper handwashing techniques with the children.
  4. Staff
    ⎯ Will undergo the same screening/questionnaire process as the children on a daily basis.
    ⎯ Have received training on procedures for proper donning and removal of PPE.
    ⎯ Have been provided with extensive information on health and safety procedures - handwashing, coughing/sneezing, social distancing of 6 ft between each other.
    ⎯ Will be doing enhanced cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting throughout the day.
  5. Online Learning ⎯ We understand that many of your children are still doing online learning with their teachers and class. If your child has regular schoolwork to complete, we will support this during our camp time. Send all schoolwork/digital devices your child will need to complete their work.
