Summer Camp FAQs
How are you able to social distance in a childcare setting?
We will be following these guidelines:
- 6’ social distancing will be promoted.
- Classes will be limited to 12 kids maximum per group with the same kids and ideally the same provider in the same group each day.
- Groups will be in separate areas of the facility, such as staggered playground times and special activities like art and music.
- Carpet squares, mats, or other visuals will be used to help kids with spacing.
- Tables with name cards may also be used to adequately space kids.
Will my child have to wear a face covering or mask?
No. We do not require children 12 and under to wear a face covering or mask but we will require of our employees.
