Our Latest Guidance

Updated Tuesday March 31, 2020

Some Champions sites are up and running to support families who need us most. So, we’re doing our part to make sure our spaces are squeaky clean and super safe. What’s new? We’re doing temperature checks each day and practicing social distancing. And there’s more. Learn all about the new health and safety protocols we’re following to keep our families and staff as healthy as can be!

  • Additional teacher and staff training. We’re training all of our teachers and staff on the enhanced precautions and preventative measures to keep everyone safe and healthy.
  • Handwashing, regular disinfecting. We continue to follow the most up-to-date guidance to ensure that our sites are as safe and clean as possible.
  • Continued suspension of family style dining. We’ve stopped our family style dining practice to reduce the spread of germs at meal time.
  • Social distancing. We’ll practice social distancing as much as possible to reduce risk.
  • Stay home if sick. Per new guidelines from our medical advisor, if you or your child have symptoms or a fever, you’ll need to stay home for 72 hours after symptoms subside.
  • Enhanced health screenings. You’ll be asked a few quick questions before you drop your child off. At sites already equipped with thermometers, teachers and children will have their temperature checked.
  • Longer drop-off and pick-up times. Health screenings above, and those to follow below will mean longer times before you enter your site. We’re working on a few activities for you and your child to do together while you wait outside or in your car.
  • Temperature checks. Forehead thermometers have been shipped. Starting Wednesday March 25, 2020 you’ll stop at a temperature check station for teachers and children before drop off.
  • Staggered drop-off and pick-up schedules. We’ll check in with you about your typical routine and may ask for your flexibility to avoid gathering of large groups.
  • Response protocols in place. We’re collaborating with local officials to make sure we have procedures ready to put in place as the situation evolves.
  • Please launder bedding and stuffed toys nightly. Taking your child’s sheets, blankets, stuffies, and plush items home every night and washing them will help limit the amount of germs in the site.

We’ll continue to do everything in our power to protect you and the children in our care. For those on the front lines of this crisis, we are profoundly grateful for you and your colleagues.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to your site director if  you have any questions about this. We’re all in this together!
