COVID-19 Response

MESSAGE TO PARENTS:

 UPDATE May 3, 2020:


COVID-19 Health and Safety Guidelines effective May 4:


· Check in at the East Gate will include health assessment with temperature check.

· Remind your child of this change and that staff will be wearing masks.

· Be prepared to say good bye to your child at the gate as entrance to the building is limited to staff and children at this time.

· Your child will be escorted into the side entrance for immediate hand washing.

· Lunches will be limited to a cold lunch with an ice pack. This reduces contamination in the refrigerator .

· Bring 1 blanket for naptime that will be sent home weekly on Friday for laundering.

· Be sure that all of your child's belongings and clothing are marked with full name.

· For pick-up of your child, you will call into the school (322-4223) and your child will be brought out the front door to your car. Please avoid gathering at the door to be compliant with social distancing guidelines. 


PLEASE KNOW THAT IN ORDER TO ASSURE THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF CHILDREN, YOUR COOPERATION WITH THESE GUIDELINES IS REQUIRED. PROTOCOLS WILL BE CHANGED BASED ON HEALTH DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATIONS. 


WE ARE EXCITED TO HAVE YOU BACK! STAFF WORKED ALL DAY ON MAY 1st TO PREPARE FOR THE HEALTH AND SAFETY REQUIREMENTS AND TO PREPARE CLASSROOMS TO WELCOME YOUR CHILDREN BACK.


WE KNOW THESE ARRANGEMENTS MAY BE INCONVENIENT AND WILL WORK WITH EACH FAMILY IF INDIVIDUAL ISSUES ARISE.

April 9, 2020:


We hope this finds you and your family members well during our country’s health crisis. 


As stated in our temporary closure letter, should your child or any family members who have been in A Child’s World become infected, please notify us so we can provide alerts.


Over half of the preschools have closed – many of us due to concern for the health of each child, family and staff. We will continue to be closed until the Governor lifts the “Stay Home for Nevada” order – which he has extended until April 30. We also remain in compliance with the directives of our professional organization, National Association for the Education of Young Children, whose policy is that for any state in which public schools are closed down, the preschools are also recommended to be closed. We will keep you posted on re-opening and because we miss all of you, we trust it will be sooner rather than later, but with adequate safety precautions for all. When we re-open, we will do everything possible to protect the health of your children, family and our staff.


Should you have questions, please feel free to leave a voice mail at 322-4223, check this website, our Facebook page or email at Director@achildsworldreno.com. Watch our Facebook page also for at-home activities to promote further educational growth and activities for your child.
