 Covid Updates:

Thank G‑d, we have successfully and safely remained open during this pandemic, following many new safety and health  protocols to adjust to current circumstances. (**See more details below). 

 If the CDC or VA State guidelines change, we will update our classes accordingly.

Some changes we made based on CDC guidelines include:

  • Daily health check reports to be completed by parents prior to school arrival on our new parent portal app

  • Temperature is taken for all staff and students each day (Anyone with a temperature over 100.4 will be sent home and will not be allowed to return to school without a doctor's note)

  • Class cohorts do not mix with other classes either inside or on the playground

  • Class cohorts are limited to 12 people including teachers

  • Staff will remain with the same group of children whenever possible

  • Masks will be worn by staff when they are in close proximity to other staff, adults or children (drop off, diaper changing, etc). 

  • Increased hand washing

  • based on new guidelines, masks are currently optional

  • New carpool system

  • Disinfecting and sanitizing spaces and equipment based on CDC guidelines.  

  • Preschool will not be offering snacks. All lunches and snacks will be provided by families. 

  • We follow all State guidelines and mandates regarding closure. Decisions to remain open or closed are based on protecting the health and well-being of the children, families and staff.  We will consult with the local health authority and our state licensing inspector if we have any positive Covid cases among our preschool families or staff to determine if we need to close, for how long, and when individuals who were exposed or tested positive can return to the program.
