WE'RE IN THIS TOGETHER


Keeping your family and our staff safe is of the utmost importance here at Little Sprouts Enrichment Child Care. We've all been navigating through this new reality and doing our best to keep those in our immediate circle healthy. For our currently enrolled families, if you need to report a positive covid-19 case or close contact exposure, please message Little Sprouts via your Brightwheel account.

Here are a few things we're doing at Little Sprouts to ensure our community stays safe and healthy:

Isolation Guidance for Children under Five and Staff​


According to LARA [childcare licensing], when a child or staff member tests positive for COVID and/or displays COVID symptoms [i.e., cough, runny nose, fever, etc...] within childcare, they are to be isolated from other children and staff and sent home. Any child or staff member with symptoms will be encouraged to get tested after five days. Under the new guidance, children who test positive or have symptoms and refuse to test after day 5 are to isolate from day-0 to day-10. Day 0 is when symptoms begin, or the day the test was toke without symptoms. A child or staff who presents any COVID-like symptoms cannot return to care before the 5-day isolation period. If you decide not to have your child tested, you must isolate them for the entire 10-day period. Children and staff who test negative on day five may return to the childcare.

Quarantine Guidance for Children under Five and Staff​


According to LARA, a child exposed to someone with COVID or identified as a close contact must quarantine for 10-days after the last date of exposure. Our program will conduct contact tracing within the child care operation and identify close contacts with the positive person. Children or staff who test positive for COVID will have to quarantine for 10-days.

DAILY HEALTH CHECKS


Each morning families and staff members must complete a daily health check. 


For staff members, this includes self-temperature readings and health checks that are individually reported to the Director before coming to work each day. 


Our families will drop children off in the front foyer to get a daily reading of their child. This temperature reading, along with a symptom checklist, is entered into our digital sign-in/out process through the Brightwheel website/app. 


We ask that you stay home for both families and staff if you feel unwell.


CONVENIENT & SAFE ATTENDANCE TRACKING


Thanks to our childcare management software, Brightwheel, our signing in and out process is quick, easy, and touch-less. Pull up the Brightwheel website/app on your phone, confirm that your health check has been completed accurately, and sign in your child using the QR code at the front entrance before entering.

MINIMIZING TRAFFIC


Little Sprouts Enrichment Child Care minimizes drop-off and pick-up traffic as a proactive step. We require each family to have only two designated adults for pick-ups and drop-offs. We ask that only one accompanying adult pick up and drop off each time of the day. 

We hope to avoid any exposure and maintain a healthy environment within our immediate community. Drop off and pick up takes place at the front entrance, where parents can quickly drop off while minimizing their entry into the classroom.
