COVID - 19
Pinebrook Montessori Kids Enrichment Center is actively monitoring the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will be updating this website regularly to share information about the Center's preparations and responses. We are also following the CDC and DC Department of Health guidelines on responding to the virus.
The Department of Social Services guidelines for opening tell us how many children we can have in a class and that classes cannot mix to reduce the risk of spreading COVID19 to the whole community. This presents some challenges for us regarding our daily schedule, napping routines, and afternoon lessons for the older children, but we are confident that we will make it work and create and maintain a healthy learning environment for everyone!
Some changes we have made:
Drop off and pick up procedures have changed in order to do daily health checks and minimize the number of people entering our building
Please call us 10-15 minutes before pick up so your child will be ready at the entrance.
Cleaning and disinfecting procedures, which will impact our end-of-day routine and pick-up time
School events and family gatherings will be paused until such time as it is safe
Parent education events will look a little different — stay tuned for more information
No visitors allowed at this point
Our timings changed from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm
Social Distancing and Use of Masks
Disinfecting and Cleaning
