Coronavirus Update

As always, we’re proud to support our community. It starts with a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. Learn how we prioritize the well-being of your children and our staff.

Welcome to Our School

Health and safety are essential to me, and at our school, they come first. Your child's well-being is always our top priority.

In this challenging, uncertain time, we recognize the strain the current climate creates for families. We remain committed to doing everything possible to support our community. That starts with a healthy, safe environment for your child when they're away from home.

Our current health and safety practices include:

Official Guidance

We are closely following guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local officials and health authorities, as we take extreme care to maintain our safe, healthy school environment.

Protective Masks

Face coverings are required for any adult entering the building (all staff members wear them when working with children). Where required by law or licensing, children must also wear masks.

Taking Temperatures

We're now screening all staff members and children upon arrival at school to check for raised temperatures or evident symptoms.

Limited Classroom Access

To curb the spread of germs and control group size, we are having parents and family members remain in common areas of the center only.

Wellness Checks

Regular wellness checks are being conducted throughout the day. The parents of unwell children are notified immediately, to help stop the spread of illness.

Safe (and Still Healthy) Dining

Family-style dining has been eliminated and we are now only serving pre-plated (or teacher-plated) meals to children.

Enhanced Health Practices

We've strengthened our already rigorous cleanliness and hygiene practices (including more frequent, longer hand washing; cleaning and sanitizing surfaces and items in classrooms).

We employ these measures to ensure your child can learn in the best environment possible. And so that you can have peace of mind while we're taking care of them.

Stay safe, stay healthy, and if you're looking for care at this time, We're here for you.

Here's what people have to say
