Frequently Asked Questions
How will health & safety after COVID-19 be implemented?
Health and safety is our number one priority. As a newly opening facility, we will be following guidelines put out by the CDC , keeping our enrollment and teacher/student ratios low, along with washing hands, sanitizing, distancing children appropriately and having the facility cleaned professionally each week. Staff wears gloves when serving food and diaper changing, and wear masks throughout the day, alongside children that are able to wear masks. Staff performs monthly COVID testing. Toys and other items, including the facility are cleaned with blue light ionization, limiting the spread of any germs and bacteria.
Can I just enroll my child without scheduling a tour or attending an open house?
Unfortunately, no. We ask families to come take a look at our daycare and learn about the program we offer, in-person, to make sure it is a right fit for your child.
Are both part-time and full-time care available?
Right now, due to our grand opening, we are giving priority to full-time care, but if we receive an adequate amount of applicants for part-time, it is something we will consider.
Are you accepting infants?
Yes. Infant classes will be added for enrollment. We will be accepting infants ages 6 weeks and up. At this time, we will be taking 4 infants (0-24 months).
How many students & teachers will be a part the program?
Our school will have up to 12 students in the classroom. This includes 4 infants and 8 toddlers. There will be 2 teachers to supervise the students daily, and one aide. All staff have an educational background with years of experience working with children. Staff will be fully-vaccinated, CPR-certified and go through a background clearance.
Do you have an open-door policy?
Yes. We understand that it is hard to leave your child all day somewhere. We are more than welcoming for parents to come by during the day, just as long as it is away from the hours of nap time, so the children are not disturbed. Please note: Due to COVID-19 health concerns, this policy is subject to change.
Are meals provided for the children?
Due to COVID-19, we do not serve lunch for the children. Parents are asked to bring lunches from home, either hot or cold. We do provide 2 snacks, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Any child with existing allergies or food sensitivities are asked to provide snacks as well to ensure safety. We are a nut-free school.
How do you keep in touch with or get in contact with the parents during the day?
We will be using the Brightwheel app which is available for download in the app store. This app is a wonderful tool for you to get picture updates, message the teacher and check your child in and out of daycare.
My child doesn't nap, so what will they do during nap time?
Some children no longer nap, but it is required with the State of California, that children are given this rest period. Many children end up napping because of all the new stimulation taking place. If your child does not happen to nap during this time, quiet time activities of appropriate age and level will be left aside for them to use, along with library books. This will be their independent time.
