Safety First and Foremost
With health and safety paramount, Learning Care Group is following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and state and local health officials, abiding by mandated requirements with extreme care to maintain a healthy school environment. The company’s hub locations are staffed by employees who have chosen to continue to work during this unprecedented time.
The company is taking abundant caution to protect its children and employees by enhancing its already rigorous hygiene, cleaning and sanitation protocols. Staff and children are screened upon arrival for symptoms, with temperatures taken. Wellness checks conducted throughout the day ensure that staff can respond accordingly if any potential sign of illness is detected. All school parents now stay in common areas rather than entering classrooms.
Learning at Home
For families unable to attend our preschools at this time, Learning Care Group’s education experts have created a one-stop shop with weekly projects, craft ideas, recipes and more to help parents keep children actively learning while at home.
