It’s a tough question. And, unfortunately, the answer is… it depends.
You will need to take into account COVID rates in your community, your schedule’s flexibility, and family members who may be vulnerable. The one thing that we feel certain of us our commitment to safety, and our dedication to the needs of our families.
We can tell you that safety is the first thing on our minds. We number among the few centers that remained in service throughout the pandemic – closing our doors to the public only briefly, to service the children of front-line workers. This means, in short, that we passed the test when it mattered.
Our center adheres to every requirement, and to our own standards of care.
What’s more, we believe that the care and experience we can provide will help your child’s development in myriad ways. Social development and the ability to *play* is essential to every child’s growth.
With the vaccine rollout, and the consistently lower transmission rates in our areas of service, we believe that your child is the safe at our centers.
Only you can make the best decision for your family. And that decision might change as new information comes in.
We hope that we have armed you with some of the information you need to make your best choice.
