The safety of everyone at the program is our number one priority. Please read the following to help your child have a smooth transition back to in-person programs and allow everyone to have a safe and enjoyable program.
Arrive early on site and show your child the safe spaces in the centre
Tell them about the screening protocols that are in place and what to expect (for example: temperature checks)
Practice proper hand washing at home
When hand washing is not available, practice using hand sanitizer .
Practice physical distancing (teach them what is a safe distance and how to follow visual markings when present)
Teach them what is a face covering or mask and that people are using them to keep clean and safe
Face masks or face coverings are required indoors, they are not required when participating in physical activities
Remind children to avoid touching their face and encourage them to practice “catching” their cough or sneeze in their elbow
Remind children to recognize their own personal belongings and to use them when needed
Remind them not to touch other people’s belongings
Talk about patience with new routines, environments and new program instructors
Encourage them to ask questions and reassure them that safety measures and program leaders are here to keep them safe
