Dear Carousel Families, The Center has updated our COVID-19 policies. The modifications were done with the intent to keep our children, staff and families healthy. The updated policies below will go into effect Monday, July 12, 2021.We appreciate your understanding cooperation.
The Centers current hours of operation will be from 5:30 am to 5:30 pm.
Safety Protocols: Bedding
Children's bedding will need to be brought to the Center on Monday morning and taken home Friday evening to be laundered for the next week. All bedding should be inside a pillow case or bag.
Drop off and Pick Up
The Center will no longer use the virtual queue for pick-up. 2 people per family may now enter the building with their children. We are requesting that anyone entering the building wear a mask. Children will be required to wash their hands upon entry to the classroom. Temperature checks will no longer be taken at the door. Carousel staff will monitor each child and check temperatures as needed.
If you are experiencing COVID like symptoms, please call the Center (663-5060) and we will bring your child to the front door for pickup!
Families with multiple children will need to drop off their oldest child to their classroom first, as well as pick their youngest child up first. This eliminates germs entering the infant classroom.
We strongly recommend that all children be dropped off before 9:30 am each day. Classroom curriculum begins at 9:00 am each day. If you would like your child to participate in the full curriculum, please drop them off by 9:00 am.
Children with a fever of 100.4 or higher, or a persistent cough, or exhibiting shortness of breath should not come to the Center. Children exhibiting these symptoms will need to be picked up from the Center as quickly as possible.
Beginning August 2, 2021, Carousel plans to take a tiered approach and give parents, children, and staff the option to wear masks in the building. This is subject to change as circumstances change.
Masks will continue to be require by staff, parents and children (over the age of 2 years) until August 2, 2021.
During this time it is crucial that our families are following our safety protocols and parent expectations to help everyone stay safe and healthy. We thank you for all that you have done to help our initiative so far.
Thanks, Melinda Cole Director Carousel Play & Learn Center
