Childcare is back with a safety focused solution for Drop In Childcare!
Safety is our number 1 priority when reopening our childcare service so we have modified how we will operate our childcare center for the time being. In order to limit exposure we are adjusting to a program based, smaller group size model.
Effective Monday – Friday starting on August 3rd:
Session 1: 8:45AM – 10:15AM
Session 2: 10:30AM – 12:00PM
Parents can choose from two sessions each day, Monday – Friday. Each session will have limited capacity and we ask that children be registered at least 24 hours in advance. A spot can be reserved online, using the Family Wellness App, or by calling the front desk at 701-234-2400. A childcare visit or an active Family Household with Childcare Membership will be needed in order to participate. Sign up for 1 day or all 5 – limited spots are available so sign up today!
Safety Precautions for Childcare Programs:
Program only available to members or children of members (no guest access, including reciprocity visits from partner facilities)
Parents and children will be screened upon entry with questions and temperature reading.
Staff will be wearing masks unless they are outdoors and able to maintain 6 feet of distance between them and children
In order to avoid contact between personal belongings, each child will be provided a basket which parents will need to put bottles, snacks, diapers, and possible changes of clothes in so staff don’t need to go through diaper bags. Parents can still use the cubbies to store other personal belongings.
To limit contact, parents are asked to put sunscreen on their child prior to drop off.
Parents will not be allowed past the childcare entry space. Staff will get your child(ren) and bring them to you at pick-up time.
We ask that only 2 families are in the childcare entry space at a time. Please maintain social distancing and follow the designated spacing markers on the floor both on the inside and outside of the childcare room.
Parents are asked to wipe down cubbies before and after use.
Toys will be rotated out and deep cleaned between each session.
Staff will perform a deep clean in between each session.
Members are strongly encouraged to wear a mask in the facility, especially when entering the facility or moving between equipment or activity areas. Children are not required to wear masks.
Please wash or sanitize your child’s hands before and after drop off and pick up.
