PRESCHOOL CARE during COVID
We deeply care about the health and wellness of everyone, and to assure we are taking necessary precautions, the following procedures are in place…
Each morning parents will do a Health Screening via The Procare App, which can be downloaded once students are enrolled in the program. Firs and Fiddleheads will follow CDC guidelines for Outdoor children programming.
Adults and children wash and sanitize hands upon arrival and throughout the day
Facility & Equipment Sanitizing
Our dedicated staff is putting extensive effort into sanitizing and disinfecting our center, all touchable surfaces and toys each night.
Space for Small Groups
Space for small group sizes and lots of time to grow, learn and discover among our towering Fir Trees and Fern gardens.
