Tiny Tots and COVID Guidelines

As we begin our Tiny Tots Fall offerings, we would like to share the COVID-19 mitigation measures that will be in place as we welcome children back to the classroom.

We will be following the current CDC Guidelines for pre-kindergarten programs (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/guidance-for-childcare.html#print).

Studies have shown that children in child care settings can become infected and spread COVID-19 to others in the child care program, at home, and in the community. In order to keep our staff, students, their families, and the community safe, we will be implementing the following measures:

 

STAY HOME WHEN APPROPRIATE
It has always been the policy at our Tiny Tots program that if staff or the children are feeling sick they should stay home.  That is especially important now with COVID and we also ask that if they are sick or have recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19 that they remain home.

 

ENTERING FACILITY
In order to minimize the number of people allowed into the facility in an effort to reduce the chance of exposure we are asking that parents do not enter the building.  Only staff and Tiny Tots will be allowed inside the building.  The sign-in/sign-out sheet will be on a desk outside the front door.  When you arrive please sign your child in and then ring the doorbell on the front door.  Staff will come to the door to greet your child and escort them into the building.  When you are coming to pick up please ring the doorbell on the front door and staff will determine who it is and bring your child to you at the front door.  Please socially distance while waiting in line at the front door.  We will only bring one child out at a time.

 

HAND WASHING
Children will be asked to sanitize or wash their hands upon arrival to the program each morning and throughout the day.

 

INDOOR SHARED SPACES
During use of a shared space we will combine multiple prevention strategies, such as use of masks, physical distancing, hand hygiene, and cleaning and disinfection of shared objects and high touch surfaces.  Masks should be used in both indoor and outdoor spaces by child care program staff and children over the age of two.

 

PLAYGROUNDS AND OUTDOOR SPACES
Outdoor spaces reduce risk of spreading COVID-19, but still require preventive behaviors (staying home when sick, physical distancing, avoiding crowds, wearing a mask, handwashing, cohorting, and cleaning and disinfection).

 

Thank you for supporting our efforts to keep our staff, your Tiny Tot, and our community safe.

About the Tiny Tots Program


The Tiny Tots Program was created in 1980 as a pre-school experience offering developmentally appropriate activities in social skills, arts and crafts, motor development, music, stories, and games. This program is offered to toilet trained children between the ages of 3 and pre-kindergarten. All children must be current on childhood immunizations. We request a copy of the child’s record no later than the first day of the first session the participant attends.

Volunteer Opportunities


We are always in need of caring, committed adults to become involved in their local youth centers. If volunteering is something that you would like to do, the first thing that you must do is complete and submit the Volunteer Request Form. After the form has been received and reviewed by the Recreation Department staff you will be notified as to whether or not your request to volunteer has been approved or denied. If you are approved, and have not been fingerprinted by the Recreation Department, you must fill out the Livescan Touchprint Application Form at the Recreation Department. Once your fingerprints have been cleared the Recreation Department will coordinate a schedule with you.
