Code of COVID Conduct


What it means:

Assumption of Infection: we will treat everyone as possible coronavirus contact, maintaining distance, washing hands regularly, and being watchful to possible contamination.

Daily Health Check:  We ask that anyone with elevated temperature, fatigue, cough, or other illness stay at home, and in isolation, until a medical professional confirms symptoms are not COVID (ex: allergies). A health declaration will be recorded with signature on drop-off.

Personal Cleanliness: all clothing items should be laundered before being worn to Buddings, and bathing before leaving the house for daycare. 

Travel Guidelines: Our fieldtrip program has been on hold since March 2020. When on walks, children's hands are sanitized before holding each other. To keep contamination to a minimum, please consider making Buddings the first stop on your route.

Limited Gatherings: only one family should make use of the cubby area at a time. Please plan to arrive and depart at staggered intervals, and wait until the area is clear before entering. 

Washing Upon Arrival: Only children and teachers will enter the playspace, washing hands immediately upon arrival. Parents should place children’s food, water, and bathroom kit in the black tote for sanitizing wiping. Fabrics will be sprayed with a sanitizing solution.  

Please change children into clean shoes on the bench and bring them to the gate. A teacher will meet you there.

Safe Sanitizing: All touch surfaces, containers, and materials will be sanitized hourly (with a bleach and water solution of 1:100), and documented daily. A limited selection of toys will be available, to be removed for cleaning, and replaced with sanitized toys as necessary. The space will be professionally cleaned and sanitized three times per week. 

Social (Distance) Daycare: We will provide educational activities that encourage personal space in play and learning. Our program teaches children how to keep themselves safe in a social context. 

Commitment to Communication: Throughout this period, we promise to keep ourselves, and you, informed with best practices, and recommendations as they become available. If you have questions or comments about this Code of Conduct, please contact Talia Erickson.
