The Ministry of Education has announced enhanced health and safety measures for child care centres and Before and After School Programs. Additionally, Kids & Us has implemented additional enhanced measures to reduce the risk of COVID-19 in our programs.
We appreciate your patience and support as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, and thank you for your understanding as we implement measures to reduce the risk of COVID-19 in our children, families and staff. The following policies have been updated to reflect the most current safety measures being implemented at Kids & Us. If you would like these policies in alternate formats, please contact your childcare supervisor.
As you know today the provincial government announced that Virtual Learning will continue for an additional 2 weeks.
Children will not be returning to in-person school on January 11, 2021 as initially planned.
The Ministry expectation for virtual learning has not changed. Children enrolled in school will continue to participate in virtual learning. Unfortunately, Kids & Us is not able to offer childcare for children currently enrolled in school.
We remind you of the importance to continue to follow local Public Health Guidance. You can find the updated information for Grey Bruce at publichealthgreybruce.on.ca
