COVID 19 UPDATE
Covid 19 regulations for childcare have changed often over the last 6 months. Since we reopened in May, we restrict the number of adults in the building. Children's temperatures are taken upon arrival and then again in the classes. Children's belongings are sprayed with sanitizer before they are brought into the building. Our children are not currently sharing inside spaces. We have the larger playground divided in two areas so two classes can be outside at the same time. The classes rotate the spaces daily. The outside hard surfaces are sanitized in between uses. When North Carolina moved into Phase Two, teachers were required to wear masks anytime they can not be six feet from a child. As teachers we feel it is important for children to see our facial expressions. We have some masks with clear sections, or we will step away from the children to talk. We are cleaning throughout the day, with high touch areas covered more often. Hand washing has been and always will be a major part of our routine.
We recently implemented a communication app, Brightwheel, for more contact less communications between parents, teachers and administration.
