Covid 19 Disclosures and Updates :

We have updated the following procedures to ensure that everyone in our center stays healthy and safe.

Drop-Off and Pick Up Procedures

We have devised a new procedure when dropping off and picking up your child to ensure everyone in our Center stays healthy and safe. When dropping off and picking up, parents must stay in the designated “Parent Area”. Our staff will escort your little one to his or her classroom. However, before you leave, we will check to see if your child is fever free.

Touchless Sign-In/Out System

Parents will scan the QR code on the kiosk screen using their smart phone (you must have the procare app downloaded on your phone) to sign their child in and out. If you do not have a smart phone, you must sanitize hour hands before touching the kiosk to sign in/out your child from care.

Keeping Area Clean

Our center has implemented an even more rigorous cleaning routine. Learning materials, toys, play equipment, tables, chairs, and shelves will be sanitized more frequently throughout the day.
