IMPORTANT Health Protocols and Safety Info: A MUST Read

COME JOIN US FOR THE KINDERGYM FUN!

Caring for Each Other:

 

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

 

We have a wonderful, very large and well-ventilated room. Our many open, big glass doors in the room give us a lot of cool, fresh air; these are separated by gating from the Kindergym play equipment. We will have the heaters on when desired.

Our classes are only as wonderful as they are safe, in both the physical and emotional sense. I ask that every adult parent or caregiver bringing their Kindergym toddler to class to be actively observing them as they climb and as they learn to share toys as is appropriate to their age. This involves close parent/caregiver attention and understanding that pulling toys is NOT a “bad thing” but instead an opportunity for the adults to acknowledge their child’s desire and frustration. We adults get to “use our words” to support. 

Our Health and Safety Protocols are the following for the FALL SignUp Series in 2022:

Unless this changes:
Adults will need to wear masks at all times! Please come prepared with a KN95, KN94, N95, or doubled surgical mask
As part of the SignUp process, ALL Adults (Parents, Family and Caregivers) will need to email me their proof of FULL VACCINATION Records as well as share Names, Phone Numbers, Emails, AND read, sign and email the attached Waiver back to me promptly!
NO ONE can enter the Temple Beth Abraham building without previously emailing me the Temple Beth Abraham Waiver.

 

As soon as entering the Temple Beth Abraham building into the Lobby, every adult will need sign in and to answer our same, pre-prepared questionnaire with 3 health questions, before entering the Kindergym Room.
Anyone who shows signs of ill-health must leave right away and contact me before returning.

 

Parents/Caregivers are here with One Adult/One Child ONLY! (No additional adults nor infants or older siblings may attend)

 

All children must be age one or older when we begin our Fall 2022 Series AND still be Under age 3 in mid December 2022.

 

Due to their age, children do NOT need to wear masks but can do so if they choose.

 

All of us want to make new friends. To best enjoy our great space and the others in it, I ask that you remember to stay close by to your child, undistracted by cellphone use.

 

CELLPHONE USE: None in the Kindergym Room!

 

NO texting, calls, photos or ringers ringing in the Kindergym room!!! You may a take a photo only after class has truly ended.

If you need to make or answer a very important call, you must take your child to the Lobby with you. You will need to leave the building and bring your child with you to answer a phone call if you wish to take your mask off!

 

We truly appreciate your loving, involved presence.

 

ILLNESS: Children with coughs, fevers, and runny noses may NOT not attend classes until following the CDC protocols for returning. Please DO NOT come into the building if you or your child has ANY signs of illness.

Adults must have the flu shot in addition to the anti-Covid vaccination(s). Children must be vaccinated as always per the normal childhood schedule required by their pediatrician.

 

NO OUTSIDE FOOD: We are a caring community and concerned for everyone’s safety. We are going to be aware of not bringing in food as there is no removal of masks for adults. One and Two Year Olds need to be fed BEFORE entering and AFTER leaving the building. No food in the Lobby or Kindergym Room.

 

FOOTWEAR: NO SHOES! Please come prepared to take off your child’s shoes and socks- and your shoes too. This means safer play and better balance!

 

POTTY LEARNING: Since this is a process that evolves over time, children are encouraged to listen to their own rhythms. However, as a safety and cleanliness concern, your Ones and Twos in underwear should be brought to the bathroom to “try” when they arrive and be monitored by their parents/caregivers for signs of need to revisit the toilet during class.

 

PLEASE alert me as you come into the Kindergym Room if your child is potty learning and in underwear when you come into the classroom!

 

MAKEUP POLICY/Refunds: We offer ONE makeup per Session. If you are in more than one Session, you can have one makeup during each. There are No Refunds.

 

SIBLINGS: I wish we could accommodate more than ONE Child to ONE Adult but we believe that for safety and health this policy will continue.

 

I look forward to sharing the pleasure of being part of our humming, exciting and connecting classes!!

Warmly,
