& Social Distancing

In order to keep your children, family, and loved ones as safe, healthy, and as reassured as possible, it’s important to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously while at the same time resisting the urge to panic.

Daily Site & Toy Santation 

Our staff wears disposable gloves to clean and disinfect. Clean any dirty surfaces using soap and water first, then use disinfectant. Clean items according to the manufacturer’s instructions using disinfectants on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Wash Your Hands Often

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • It’s especially important to wash:
  • Before eating or preparing food
  • Before touching your face
  • After using the restroom
  • After leaving a public place
  • After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
  • After handling your mask
  • After changing a diaper
  • After caring for someone sick
  • After touching animals or pets
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Clean and Disinfect

  • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
  • If surfaces are dirty, clean them. Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
  • Then, use a household disinfectant. Use products from EPA’s List N: Disinfectants for Coronavirus (COVID-19)external icon according to manufacturer’s labeled directions.

Monitor Your Health Daily

  • Be alert for symptoms. Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.
    • Especially important if you are running essential errands, going into the office or workplace, and in settings where it may be difficult to keep a physical distance of 6 feet.
  • Take your temperature if symptoms develop.
    • Don’t take your temperature within 30 minutes of exercising or after taking medications that could lower your temperature, like acetaminophen.
  • Follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.

COVID Safety Protocol

COVID 19 Precautions for Employees & Children

Our Directors will be wearing masks or face shields and will be respecting social distancing.

We follow the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environmental screening regulations. We will screen each employee and child for symptoms before they start their shift or enter the program. 


Fever 100.4 degrees fahrenheit or above, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, fatigue, muscle aches, sore throat, loss of taste or smell. 

If any employee or child reports any of these symptoms, we will send the employee or child home immediately. After doing so we provide a full sanitation wipe down by increasing the cleaning of our facility. We will exclude the employee or child until they are fever-free (without medication) for 72 hours and 10 days have passed since their first symptom (unless they have a clear alternative diagnosis from a medical provider). If multiple employees or children have symptoms, we will contact our local health department and follow their protocol.
