POLICIES AND PROCEDURES CHILDCARE OPERATIONS COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Dear Parents;

Kinderplace Childcare Centre will reopen and provide Childcare services to children and families adhering to all health and safety measures provided to us by local health authorities for our Infant, Toddler and Preschool programs as of Sept. 1, 2020.  We will be excited to see all our families back in September.

We are requesting that all families fill in New Registration forms to allow parents to document any preexisting health issues for their children ex. Asthma, Allergies etc., update contact information etc. You will be asked to attest and agree to abide by all the new policies and procedures prior to starting in our program.

Kinderplace has developed a COVID-19 parent handbook outlining the policies and procedures for Re-opening.

You will also find the Policies and Procedures for Re-opening Childcare Centre’s provided by our local Thunder Bay District Health Unit, and the Reopening Guidance Document from the Ministry of Education  on this page. These documents will be monitored, and changes will be maintained/revised through our website as we go along.

Kinderplace Childcare Centre is a licensed Childcare facility that is regulated by the Ministry of Education and overseen by the Thunder Bay District Health Unit. Kinderplace will proceed to follow all protocols and procedures for daily health checks, exclusion of children, parents, and staff who are sick, infection prevention control, sanitary practices as well as in-program health and safety considerations. It is imperative to our success that all staff, children and parents provide honest answers to our screening checklist and abide by exclusion guidelines should illness prevail.

Thank-you for your patience during this unprecedented time. We look forward to welcoming new and existing families in the coming weeks once our JK/SK and School-age programs reopen.


Sincerely,

Brenda Sas

Executive Director
