Even though all Florida schools are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, daycares have decided to remain open. While several people are currently working from home, many workers are still required to be on-site to keep our community going. For many parents, open daycares are not only an option but a necessity.
Healthcare workers, firefighters, police officers, and other professionals that are serving the community need a reliable daycare for their children during this trying time. Since essential workers are unable to work from home, Tiniciti Preschool is committed to providing excellent childcare during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 spread is irregular in the Miami-Dade county. For this reason, health officials have determined that closing daycares is not essential. As a result, daycares are required to follow the health recommendations determined by the CDC such as frequent hand washing, checking the temperature of staff and students before entering the building, wearing gloves and masks, and regular disinfection of surfaces. Furthermore, there’s a maximum amount of 10 students per classroom to make sure there’s appropriate social distancing between the kids.
Parents who are currently working from home can continue their child’s education through distance learning. Our curriculum team created lesson plans and activities for the month of April and will continue to build lessons as the situation progresses. Parents can pick up the materials they’ll need for Distance Learning every Friday from 8 am till 5 pm.
Meetings will be held online through the ZOOM platform for classroom conferences and check-ins. This is a newly added extension of our curriculum, where our teachers will be about to carry out the daily routine. Moreover, we’ll live stream with parents and speak with them on how to best educate their kids on the pandemic, why it’s important to stay healthy, and how to prevent the spread of germs.
This to-go curriculum guide includes supplementary activities you can do at home with your child to reinforce the weekly lesson with tips on basic hygiene practices, suggested books you can read with your kids, and online resources for extracurricular activities that support a balance of playtime, downtime and family time.
