Fees: Residents $192 Our program supports children in developing age-appropriate habits of observation, questioning, and listening. It gives them awareness of their own feelings and of their right to express those feelings by channeling them into other means of expression. Our program prepares children to utilize their intellectual and creative abilities for present and future learning tasks. Our dedicated team of childcare providers structure their curriculum and conduct their classes based on the goals of the program. The overarching goals of our Preschool program include: - Providing a safe and secure environment that allows children to thrive - Teaching basic skills such as colors, shapes, and number/letter recognition - Creating opportunities for children to develop social skills - Conducting physical activities designed to develop motor skills - Introducing and engaging children in standard school subjects such as language arts, math, and science - Facilitating creative and imaginative play Safety Adaptations Overview: - Participants will be assigned to a childcare site based on staff’s knowledge of registered participants. If a participant is unknown to the program Supervisor, more information about the child may be requested before assigning them to a site in order to determine the best fit. Special requests for site assignments or participant pairings will not be accepted. - Check-in/check-out area must be sufficiently spaced and marked so that participants and parents/guardians can line up six-feet apart. Check-in/check-out will be located in pre-designated spaces for each grouping of participants, so parents/guardians do not bottleneck more than ten per location while maintaining a six feet gap between each household cluster waiting to check-in. - Restrooms must be accessible during all program hours, and monitored to ensure that only one person per stall is inside the restroom facility. Markings will be placed to ensure that people waiting to enter the restroom are six feet apart. - Hand-washing stations must be accessible so that participants and staff can wash hands (or use hand sanitizer at a minimum) at each transition of activity and/or every 45 minutes. - An isolation area (resting station) must be established to keep participants or staff that develop symptoms during camp away from others. Each facility will need a primary isolation area pre-designated and a secondary isolation pre-designated. - Indoor activities, and snack areas must be set-up to provide six-feet of separation between each participant. Those areas must be disinfected and sanitized by staff after each use. - Staff is required to wear face masks that cover the nose and mouth at all time. It is recommended (not required) that participants wear face masks.
