COVID-19

  • As a community we do everything we can to keep each other safe and healthy. However, from time to time, we may have an exposure incident in our program. If this occurs, we participate fully with King County Childcare Health Program guidance.
  • We will notify parents in the exposed classrooms immediately.
  • We will only close classrooms or the center if it is deemed to be the best method of keeping all of our children, teachers, and families safe and healthy.
  • If a partial or full closure is required, teachers are asked to use time in quarantine to refresh their skills with online classes and course work, lesson planning, and preparation for returning to work with new knowledge and understanding. They are paid for their time, and as such, there is no credit given for partial or full closures based on COVID-19 exposure.
