COVID 19 – Protocols & Procedures

Please refer to Public Health Guidance for British Columbia – Coronavirus COVID-19 Update

These are our specific protocols:

  1. Any adult entering the premises must be wearing a mask.
  2. Adults that are not staff, are not to enter the centre unless given permission. We ask that you do not pass the Kitchen Door (half door).
  3. Anyone picking up or dropping off must respect a social distance of 6 metres. Please do not wait on the porch if another child is being picked up or dropped off.
  4. Please remember to stick to your signed up times for pick up and drop off. Changes that occur within the day must be communicated via email or phone.
  5. All belongings that are within the centre must go home and be cleaned for the next day. Please refrain from large stuffies and blankets.
  6. Please fill out the Daily Health Checklist through email. This is a mandatory checklist that Vancouver Coastal Health requires.

ILLNESS POLICY – Taken from PVCC Family Handbook

Children who are not well enough to participate in all program activities, both indoor and outdoor, should be at home.
If your child contracts a communicable disease, notify the centre at once so that other families can be alerted. A doctor’s written health clearance will be required before a child returns following a communicable disease.
The following are definite indicators that a child should NOT be at daycare.

  • A developing or acute cold with fever, runny nose and/or eye, coughing, sore throat. Once temperature, energy and well-being are normal, coughing and runny nose may continue without the child being infectious.
  • Typically a child has a fever when his or her oral (mouth) or armpit temperature is 37.5°C (99.7°F) or higher
  • Communicable disease, infected skin or undiagnosed result – whether or not a child is 
infectious requires verification by the child’s doctor (i.e.: the rash could be measles, 
scabies, etc.) so other families can be informed and take precautions.
  • Vomiting or Diarrhea– Because children often become ill rapidly, it’s essential that families can be reached during childcare hours. If the parent cannot be available, and alternate emergency contact should be designated. In the event that a child becomes ill, the centre staff will isolate and care for the child until the parent arrives. While every effort will be taken to maintain a healthy environment, it’s important for families to plan alternate arrangements in the event of their child’s illness.

We make these requests for the following reasons:

  1. The protection of others – Germs spread faster through younger children. We want to maintain a healthy environment for everyone.
  2. A child’s recovery could be delayed – He/she is more likely to acquire other illnesses when the immune resistance is reduced.
  3. The inability to focus and function in large group situations
  4. A sick child requires one teacher’s full attention – Teachers can not look after a child one on one

A good rule of thumb is: If in doubt, don’t send your child.
