Is it safe for my child to attend child care? Research currently shows that when proper precautions are taken, the risk of children contracting COVID-19 in child care is low. We are following all regulations and guidelines including rigorous cleaning, mask-wearing of children and adults at all times, social distancing and hand washing procedures, and symptom monitoring.
If my child has allergies or a runny nose, can I send them to child care? We ask that you keep children home if they are feeling ill, even with mild symptoms. If your child suffers from allergies or another condition with symptoms similar to COVID-19, we require a doctor's note to admit your child to our program.
