Summer Care During COVID-19

Thornton Community Center

May 28 - July 31 from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

AGES 5-13 (must have completed kindergarten)

We know that childcare is a critical need for families to return to work and that openings are limited in our community.  We have been working closely with task forces, licensing,  health department and our city officials to understand current best practice and regulations.  These precautions will be key to the success of a safe and healthy summer and our continued ability to offer care.  Therefore, we are offering care with the following health and safety modifications:

    • Curbside drop-off and pick-up including daily temperature checks and health screenings to limit unnecessary exposure

    • Stay on site utilizing indoor and outdoor spaces

    • Limit groups within our licensed capacity to a max of 10 youth, 2-3 groups in our larger spaces with divisions to allow for social distancing

    • Provide stable groups, rooms, and staffing

    • Limit materials and provide structured activities to allow for personal equipment and supplies, cleaning, and sanitizing

    • Require that all participants and staff wear self-provided and self-laundered masks

    • Require that all participants provide their own food- shelf-stable (no refrigeration or heating needed) snacks and lunches

    • Group youth considering their household, developmental levels, and interests

    • Spend as much time as possible outdoors, maintaining social distancing and the set health and safety practices

    • Children experiencing any symptoms including a slight fever, runny nose or cough will not be permitted to come to care.  Should any staff or participant test positive for Covid-19, we will consult with Tri-County Health Department and close for the directed timeframe.  No refunds will be issued in these circumstances.
