Here’s what LCC is doing for safety:

During this time, we have been in constant one on one communication with our families while offering family support. We have received training on proper usage of sanitation and PPE and received supplies to disinfect.

Staff have all received face shields and/or will be wearing face masks.

Upon arrival staff are visually screened and temperatures are taken. All staff must wash their hands immediately upon entering the building.

We are frequently cleaning high touch areas such as: light switches, handles, countertops, sinks, cots, etc.

We have been quarantining rooms that are not being used. Bathrooms are only for child/staff.

We have limited the use of water fountains. Water will always be made available, however if you feel uncomfortable with drinking cups, you may choose to bring your child his/her own water bottles.

Safety Procedures that will be taken upon the return of children

A staff member will greet you at the door and all-party members will have their temperature checked. Adults will not be allowed into the building to limit contamination.

If you see a family being screened at the door, please wait at a safe distance until that family is cleared. Visual directions will be available.

 A visual screen will be done by a staff worker upon arrival. We reserve the right to decline a child based off the visual screening of the parent, guardian and/or child.

• If a child OR adult has a temp of 100.4 ᵒF or above, they will be turned away for 24hr or until fever free w/o use of Tylenol. If other symptoms, will need doctor’s note to return.
• Limit one family member per drop off if possible. Family member must be wearing mask during drop-off and pickup. Please note: you will not be screened without a mask.
• We reserve the right to turn away for runny nose, coughing, sniffling, watery eyes etc.

Children will be washing hands upon entry and in-between every transition.

We will keep children as far apart as possible during mealtime and naptime.

Children will be required to bring lunch daily.

We will be staggering play time. This will give us an opportunity to sanitize and disinfect areas and limit contact.

Children age 3 and up are required to wear masks per Office of Early Childhoood. Children under 3 are not expected to have masks.

If an outbreak occurs in the center, we will close for 14 days, per CDC/OEC Guidelines.

Center hours will be reduced due to COVID [8a.m.-5:30p.m.]. Before and Aftercare will not be available during this time.

We will not be operating at full capacity until we can safely increase to maximum enrollment.
