Covid 19 Policies & Procedures

Just Kids will actively take the following measures to mitigate the spread of coronavirus.  We ask that you follow these rules diligently, to sustain a healthy and safe workplace in this unique environment. It is important we all respond responsibly and transparently to these health precautions. This coronavirus (COVID-19) company policy is subject to change with the introduction of additional governmental guidelines. 

  • Parents and staff must wear a mask at pick up and drop off. 
  • If possible, classes will include the same group of children each day.
  • We have postponed special events and may reschedule at a later date. 
  • We will alter daily group activities that may promote transmission by:
  • Keeping each group of children in a separate room.
  • Limiting  the mixing of children. 
  • Allowing only one group of children on the playground at a time. 
  • Children will eat their meals in their own classroom.
  • Mats will be spaced out as much as possible during nap time.
  • Cribs will be spaced out as much as possible.
  • Suspending all extracurricular activities such as gymnastics, soccer, baseball, and dance.

Cleaning and disinfection procedures:

  • We will have a dedicated team of staff whose sole responsibility will be to ensure that the environment is as healthy and sanitary as possible.
     
  • We are using two different EPA approved disinfectants. 

    • We have developed a schedule for cleaning and disinfecting.
    • We will routinely clean, sanitize, and disinfect surfaces and objects that are frequently touched, especially toys and games. This will also include cleaning objects/surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, classroom sink handles, countertops, nap pads, toilet training potties, desks, chairs, cubbies, and walls. 
    • We will use all cleaning products according to the directions on the label. 
    • We will keep all cleaning products out of children’s reach. 

 

  • Where necessary, toys will be used on a very limited basis.
  • Toys that cannot be cleaned and sanitized will not be used.
  • We will clean all toys by soaking  in a cleaning solution for at least 2 minutes and then allowed to air dry on a towel. Once dry, toys are to be put away in their proper location.
  • Children’s books, like other paper-based materials such as mail or envelopes, are not considered a high risk for transmission and do not need additional cleaning or disinfection procedures.

 

 

  • We will sanitize all mats after each use. 
  • We will keep each child’s bedding separate and store them only in individually labeled cubbies. Parents, please take your child’s bedding home weekly and launder them. We will never allow children to use another child’s bedding. Bedding will be used for naptime only.

 

 

 

  • All meals will be served in each classroom instead of the Cafeteria. Each child’s plate will be served individually.
