Our Response to COVID-19

Updates to our classrooms

We have made physical changes to our Montessori classroom. Each child has their own area of work and activities in line with the Montessori philosophy. Giving each other personal space and allowing self directed learning in a prepared environment designed specifically for each child's needs.

We also grouped our kids with 1 teacher to 6-9 kids per area and practice grouping indoor and outdoor play times. Step by step COVID19 safety measures have been observed at school since we opened our doors in June. Our main focus is always safety first, a secure loving learning Montessori environment and a good understanding of caring for self and each other.

Wellness Checks

Wellness Checks

Teachers will conduct visual wellness checks of your child/children inside your car. We will do temperature check, ask about​ fever, cough, difficulty in breathing or other signs of illness within the last 24 hours.

Washing Hands

Washing Hands

Your child will wash hands before entering the classroom using a portable sink provided outside. Throughout the day, there will be also washing of hands for all kids, before and after eating and any class activity. Teachers will sanitize the sink and toilet handles before and after each child’s use.

Sanitizing Shoes

Sanitizing Shoes

Your child’s shoes will also go through the wet sanitizing and drying process before entering the classroom. Before going home and driving through pick up, your child will go through the shoe disinfecting process again.

Prepared Environment

Nap Time

Cots will be spaced 6 feet apart from each other for nap time. Each head of the bed will be arranged alternately in opposite directions, to lessen the possible spread of illness between children from coughing or sneezing.

Personal Spaces

Personal Spaces

Each child will have a space of his/her own which includes their developmental materials that supports Montessori learning. Teachers will wipe surfaces after every activity. We will also use UVC light to sanitize all areas in the classroom.

Indoor/Outdoor Play

Indoor/Outdoor Play

Schedules are staggered of indoor and outdoor play. Adjusting schedules will reduce the number of children in the same area.
