As we prepare to move into Level 3 we also need to abide by Ministry of Education and Public Health guidance to operate safely. We can open at Level 3 with limited capacity for essential workers and their children. We can also accept parents that require ECE for other reasons i.e if there is a desperate need. MOE guidelines are children should learn from home if possible.
Some of requirements are we have been given for level 3 is (once again)a higher amount of cleaning of all surfaces daily with high touch surfaces cleaned more frequently, frequent hand washing, stay at home if sick, toys that can not be wiped put away, sleep furniture cleaned after use by child and PPE/mask not required to be worn.
What we require now moving forward is if you could please inform me if you will be attending at level 3 and what are the hours essential workers will require as this is going to be based on what the we hours of operation of the centre will be during level 3.
Also as our role does not really indicate hours, for the children who are going to attend at Level 3 what hours do you require at level 3 in order to fore fill your work obligations? Ideally we would like to close earlier than 5.30 due to extra cleaning and we will be teaching with a smaller team at level 3 and have to spread ourselves out over quite a long day.
MAIN POINT is can you please email (please use – firstname.lastname@example.org) or text me on 0275706124 what your intentions are and at which level you intend to return. If returning at level 3 what are the hours your require so I can plan teaching staff roster plus hours of operation. Level 2 will hopefully be back to normal hours.
Will look forward to hopefully getting back to normal soon
