Wellness Procedures

    • Temp Checks for volunteers, parents and children before entering kidmin spaces 
  • Check-In Procedure

    • One adult per child for drop-off and pick-up 
    • Check-in will be limited to a specified area at campuses, where possible.

Enhanced Cleaning Procedures

  • All surfaces wiped down before, in between and after services with EPA-approved cleaners
  • Toys will be divided by service, cleaned and put away after one service. New toys will come out for a new service (to prevent cross-contamination between services). 

Classroom Impact
