Our COVID-19 Response

We have remained open throughout these challenging times and are always here to support our community!

We truly appreciate our families and are so thankful for the continued support. 

Thank you! 

Milestones Learning Center has always put their student and staff’s safety as our priority. With COVID-19 we have taken additional measures to ensure our school stays well and is safe for daily care. We ask that all families support our approach to wellness even if the measures taken are designed for the benefit of the whole vs. the individual. Please review the following measures. If you have any questions please review the FAQs below or feel free to contact us directly.

 

  • Hours are 7am to 5:30pm with optional an extended care program from 5:30pm to 6pm.

  • Milestones Learning Center strongly recommends and encourages all staff and new hires to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. 

  • Drop off and pick up are curbside between the hours of 7am-830am and again between 4pm-530pm. Guests are  permitted into the facility between the hours of 830-4pm but we do ask that they refrain from entering the classrooms.

  • We conduct health checks at the door each day prior to allowing students to attend. Those with a temperature of 100° or higher are not admitted to school that day. Children with a persistent cough or cloudy, yellow, or green runny nose are not allowed to attend. Children on fever mediation, cough, or cold mediation are also not allowed to attend.

  • Handwashing for students and staff occurs at drop off, before and after each meal, after each bathroom or diaper change, after each outdoor play time and whenever someone coughs or sneezes.

  • All equipment is washed between use, linens are washed after every use. 

  • Children sleeping on cots are spaced in a head to toe pattern at least 3, and up to 6, feet apart when possible.

  • Hallways are used by 1 class at a time. When students are in the hallways there are markers to help assist them in social distancing themselves.

  • The school is vacuumed multiple times a day and classes are Lysol sprayed when not occupied and at the beginning and end of each day.

  • Chairs, tables, and other high touch surfaces are bleach sprayed and warm soap water washed between use and bathrooms are cleaned after each group use.

  • Measures have been taken to have the carpets and other surfaces treated for germ resistance with Monofoil. Carpets and flooring are professionally cleaned twice a year during center breaks.

  • NOTE: We follow the local Health Department and CDC guidelines which are subject to change at any time

    • The current guidelines for exposure are:

      • A student who presents with symptoms of COVID-19, the Delta variant, or Omicron variant or any other Corona variant will be asked to refrain from care for 6 full days, be fever free for 24hours or provide the school with a negative COVID test to return.

      • If a student is living with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, then the student will be required to test daily with an at home kit to assure they are not COVID positive or remain out of care for 5 days to be observed for any health symptoms that may develop.

      • If a student has been in contact with a person who is COVID positive but does not live with that person nor does that person provide regular care for the child outside of school, then the child can attend school if they themselves are not presenting with any symptoms.

  • Tuition is not pro-rated based on attendance/absence.

  • As a reminder symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

Fever or chills
Cough
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Fatigue
Muscle or body aches
