Why is Kiddie Academy open during the COVID-19 crisis?

Fostering and serving our communities is at the core of what we do. In this crisis it means being available to those that need us most: essential workers. While these essential workers are at the forefront of this pandemic, we want to be able to provide high quality educational child care for their families. We are working closely with our local agencies to do this safely and effectively.

The health and safety of our families and teachers is our top priority. Please be assured that we are continuing to monitor this health issue closely and have preventative measures in place to keep our Academy children and teachers safe. These preventative measures include but are not limited to:

  • Continuing to implement our handwashing procedures frequently throughout the day using soap and water and scrubbing vigorously for at least 20 seconds.
  • Reminding teachers and students to avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Strictly enforcing our illness policy for both students and staff.
  • Separating sick students and teachers from others until they can go home.
  • Rigorously implementing our three-step cleaning process (wash, rinse, disinfect) for toys and surfaces.
  • Removing and sanitizing mouthed toys immediately.
  • Regular laundering of soft items such as bedding, boppy pillows, dress up items, puppets, etc.
