New Mandate

Mar 19, 2020

Good Evening Families,

We have received new information on how to proceed in the coming weeks to maintain the safety and limit the spread of COVID-19. All private daycare facilities have been mandated to limit persons in each classroom to 10, that is including teachers and students. This will be going into effect Friday, March 20th and we will be following this mandate without question.

The Virginia Department of Social Services is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and all guidance that is being distributed to child care facilities at the federal level. For centers remaining open, they encourage us to adapt service settings as much as possible to align with public health recommendations. We strongly encourage families to remain at home to care for their children if at all possible. This will help ensure spaces for essential personnel in need of child care as they directly support the COVID-19 response efforts. Thank you.
