Hand hygiene is the most important way to reduce the spread of infection. Many studies have shown that improperly cleansed hands are the primary carriers of infections. Hand hygiene is effective in preventing transmission of disease. Children are required to wash hands thoroughly upon arrival at the center, prior to snack, after outside playtime, after toileting and handling mucous (sneeze, runny nose, etc.) For a review of proper handwashing techniques with children, please visit the following website: https://www.aap.org/en-us/advocacy-and-policy/aap-health-initiatives/healthy-child-care/Documents/AR_Handwashingp.pdf Handwashing etiquette will also be a part of the daily curriculum at the center.
Illness Policy during the COVID-19 Pandemic
While we understand that many symptoms of illness can also be related to non-COVID-19 issues, we must proceed with an abundance of caution during this Public Health Emergency. Should your child or any member of your family become sick, you may not bring your child to school. It is mandatory to notify the Director to advise of your child's or family member's symptoms. The Local Health Department will be notified by the Christian Nurturing Center of each illness that occurs. Should they determine additional steps such as COVID-19 testing are required prior to your child’s return, you will be advised. In all cases, the Local Health Department guidance, current State regulations and CDC guidelines will be followed to determine when it is appropriate for your child to return to school. Failure to follow these guidelines will be a cause for immediate termination of enrollment at the Christian Nurturing Center.
