The health and safety of families and teachers in our Academies is our top priority. Please be assured that we have communicated enhanced preventative measures to all of our Academies to help them keep their children and teachers safe. To learn even more about what Kiddie Academy is doing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we invite you to read Health Essentials, our health and safety guide. This guide provides you with information on important issues such as our mask policy, social distancing, drop-off and pickup protocols, and dining procedures. These preventative measures include but are not limited to:
In addition, we are asking that families support the healthy environment in our Academy with the following measures:
Families can find the sick child policy for their Kiddie Academy in their Parent Essentials Handbook.
Kiddie Academies across the nation are working to support essential workers. If you are an essential worker looking for childcare, you can find your local Kiddie Academy here and get more information on openings and availability.
Kiddie Academy is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. We are actively following guidelines from the CDC and partnering with local Health departments to make the best and safest decisions for our families and communities.
Child care workers are considered eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in most states. Each Kiddie Academy location is independently owned and operated and will make their own decisions regarding vaccination protocol for staff. Regardless, staff will continue to follow the COVID-19 safety protocols currently in place to help stop the spread.
Because this is considered private medical information and very much a personal choice, your local Kiddie Academy is not able to share details on which teachers have chosen to receive the vaccine. However, we remain committed to supporting and a encouraging teachers and staff to receive the vaccine when they are ready to do so. All staff remain committed to implementing the Health Essentials procedures to help stop the spread.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, children under 16 are not authorized to get vaccinated for COVID-19. Until we have more information on this topic, we are not requiring children to be vaccinated for COVID-19.
Yes. There will be no change in the Academy’s safety protocols. Social distancing and masks are still required for everyone, regardless of vaccination status. Because there is no data yet available demonstrating the ability of the vaccines to prevent viral transmission, it is important to continue to wear a mask, socially distance and practice proper hygiene even after getting vaccinated.
