2020/2021 Program with COVID-19 Protocols

Some of the considerations that informed this decision include:

  1. Class size: Maintaining the limit of 12 children per class, with the Bungalow (for ages 4.5+) limited to fewer children since the classroom is smaller than the other two classrooms.
  2. Dedicated teachers: Teachers will remain with their cohort for the duration of the school day to minimize other staff having to step in.
  3. Smaller teacher to student ratio: With smaller group sizes, children can expect more opportunities for one-on-one work with a teacher. The ratio will be 1:6 in the Garden and Sun Rooms, and will be 1:8 in the Bungalow.
  4. Accommodating our full-day families: Most of our families need a full-day schedule so offering a longer school day would work for the majority of families.
  5. Weekly staff meeting: We will have a shorter school day on Fridays so our staff can meet to connect over school news and curriculum planning. We plan to conduct socially-distanced staff meetings outdoors after the children are picked up from school.
  6. Robust health protocol and enhanced cleaning and sanitizing: Extra measures in place to keep everyone as healthy as possible.
