We provide warm and nurturing care for children ages 3 months-4 years, implementing the Creative Curriculum. Staff is trained in CPR and First Aid.
Weather permitting, walks and outdoor play give your child fresh-air daily. We teach the children healthy habits with daily exercise and offer healthy snacks twice a day, along with milk and bottled water for lunch/snack time. In keeping with the Y’s goals, we encourage character development through caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Due to COVID-19, we will be following new state Licensing Regulations, which include:
- Class size will be limited to 10 students maximum, with 2 teachers.
- No co-mingling between classes; students can only stay with their class and designated teachers.
- Children over the age of 2 are highly encouraged to wear face masks indoors except during meal and nap times (every child 2 years old or older must wear/bring a face mask to school daily).
- Teachers and Y staff are mandated to wear masks (unless there is a medical reason that bars them from doing so).
- Parents and visitors are not permitted in the building. Drop-off and Pick-up will occur at the Child Care wing emergency doors.
- Each child and Y staff member will undergo a daily health screening upon entry, which would include a temperature check. Those experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 – such as fever of 100.4 or higher, cough, shortness of breath, headache, muscle pain, chills and any new loss of taste or smell AND/OR any household members experiencing those symptoms – will be excluded from the center. Administering fever reducing medicine prior to school arrival is strictly forbidden, and children will be excluded to enter school if medicine was given.
- Anyone in close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 is excluded from the center and Y. The Y will follow the local Health Department instructions for length of exclusion.
- If there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 at our school, we will contact the state Health Department regarding next steps and may be required to close temporarily.
- There are enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures and we have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting throughout the day.
- All children and staff will be asked to utilize hygiene practices, such as frequent hand washing throughout the day.
