Big and Tiny follows our health essentials guidelines, a set of standard operating procedures that can help mitigate the spread of potential infection throughout our Studios. This includes precautions and recommendations for COVID-19 which are specifically focused on social distancing, disinfection, wellness education, and symptom monitoring. These protocols may vary based on region and the level of outbreak in the area. The goal of health essentials is to uphold the highest level of health precautions and cleanliness for proper child care delivery.
Screening Procedures Upon Arrival:
Clients are asked to do a daily health screening of their child upon check in. All staff are trained to perform visual health inspections. Clients will be sent home immediately at first signs of illness.
Personal Protective Equipment:
All Big and Tiny staff are fully vaccinated and will wear face masks for ten days if a case of COVID-19 is reported in the Studio. Gloves will be used to prepare meals and during snacks as well as toileting. All other non-vaccinated adults entering the premises must wear a face-covering mask at all times.
Coronavirus Vaccination and Testing:
All Big and Tiny staff members are vaccinated from COVID-19 and are tested regularly. New families are required to get tested prior to enrolling unless they are vaccinated.
Cleanliness & Hygiene:
Staff, parents, and children are required to thoroughly wash hands throughout the day and disinfect upon entry. Hand sanitizing stations are conveniently provided. All toys, materials, and surfaces are disinfected after every use. A deep clean of the premises is performed every evening and additional cleaning throughout the day.
All families are required to sign a COVID-19 waiver before the first day of school.
