COVID-19 PROTOCOL CHANGES
We will be providing 4 healthy snacks per day. Parents required to bring a healthy lunch for their child(ren) each day. All food must be PEANUT / NUT FREE.
Please ensure everything is labeled (lunch kit, containers, etc.). Please use an ice pack to keep cold items cool.
Sanitization will take place daily. Frequently touched surfaces will be wiped down several times per day.
Field trips will resume July 2022
There will be hand sanitizer made available throughout the facility, however, it is recommended that children not use sanitizer, but wash their hands instead.
As per Alberta Health guidelines, it is the parent’s responsibility to do a pre-screening checklist daily upon arriving at daycare. Please note that the checklist is updated periodically depending on Alberta Health guidelines.
Children can attend the program with a cough if they have had 2 negative covid tests (within a 24-hour period) and are able to participate in all normal activities of the program.
We will have to exclude any child or staff member that has cold symptoms or other COVID-19 related symptoms until they are tested. If results are negative, they are welcome to return when symptoms have improved. If a child has allergies, asthma, etc. that give them cold like symptoms – we will need to see that a COVID test comes back negative before they will be able to attend (as per Alberta Health).
Due to city by-laws, the mask mandate has been lifted until further notice. Mask will be permitted if parents / staff are showing COVID symptoms but test negative to ensure the safety of the children and staff. Staff members will be required to wear masks when in close contact with children such as changing diapers, supervising sick children, and comforting children in distress.

Each child needs to bring a backpack to store all items such as (sunscreen, bug spray, hat, water bottle, change of clothes etc.) that will remain at the daycare. These items must be labeled. Any dirty clothing will be put into a bag for parents to take home at the end of the day.
Other personal items from home are permitted at the centre. This means stuffed animals; blankets can be brought in daily and sent home at the end of the day.
We are currently accepting children of all ages. We are currently scheduling tours during operational hours.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns regarding COVID-19. Our job is to try our best to ensure your child’s safety.
Thank you and see you soon!
