Dear KCELC Families,
We hope you are all doing well. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing KCELC to care and nurture your child’s development – it’s an important job and we don’t take it lightly. We would also like to thank you for your patience and understanding with us throughout these uncertain times.
As you know, the Ministry of Education announced on June 9, 2020 that licensed child care centres are able to reopen their doors operating at a lower capacity effective June 12, 2020. With only three days notice, we were left wondering how any child care centre could open in a safe manner with such limited time. With that said, many of the staff at KCELC have been working tirelessly to develop enhanced policies and procedures as well as coordinating staffing this past week. We have made the decision to reopen our doors at reduced capacity starting June 29th, 2020. We feel that this additional time is necessary as it would provide us enough time to plan and prepare – so that we can feel confident knowing that we took all the necessary precautions.
Although our reopening procedures may seem very different from what everyone is used to, we are excited about this reopening as we see it as one step closer towards normalcy.
We also wanted to reach out to you to inform our families about what we are doing here at KCELC to ensure that your child is safe and healthy in our care.
First and foremost, I want to assure our families that we are taking all appropriate measures to ensure our centre is safe as our policies and protocols in place are based on Ministry of Education guidelines with the consultation with Toronto Public Health.
To protect yourself and others, we ask that all family members who are feeling unwell refrain from visiting us so that together we can ensure a safe and comfortable experience for everyone.
The following are the enhanced health and safety policies we have been developing and will be in place for our reopening. Please direct all policy related questions/concerns to email@example.com.
