Today, we’ll talk about managing the coronavirus in daycare.

Everyone is talking about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) right now. It’s everywhere on TV and social media.

Here at CareLuLu, we work with thousands of families and child care programs, and we’re getting questions from a lot of worried parents and caregivers.

As a child care provider or preschool director, you’re probably getting bombarded with questions from parents about whether their child is safe in your care.

The question is:

What should child care providers do to keep children (and staff) safe during the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak?

Should daycares close because of the coronavirus? Should you continue “business as usual”? Or, implement new safety protocols?

In this post, you’ll learn about the coronavirus, its symptoms, and also 5 important things child care providers can do to keep children safe, and prevent the Coronavirus from spreading in your child care facility.

But first:

If you’re a parent looking for child care, go to www.CareLuLu.com to find daycare or back up care. Many child care facilities remain open during the coronavirus outbreak, especially home daycares.

Is My Preschool Playground Actually Safe?

Here is a startling statistic:

Every year, over 200,000 children are injured on playgrounds in America.

That’s a troubling number for parents, but those running child care and preschool programs should also be concerned. Whether you run a large preschool or a small home daycare, the children in your care every day can suffer one of those injuries.

The likelihood is that at some point, one of your toddlers or preschoolers will fall and get hurt on your preschool playground. That’s pretty much inevitable. However, the severity of the injury (and the legal ramifications if the parents were to sue you) can be minimized if you work to keep your child care playground safe and up to code.

Did you know that more than half of obese children become overweight by the time they’re 2? Did you also know that roughly one in five children is overweight by their 6th birthday? Given such high statistics, as the director of an early education program, it’s critical that you support physical fitness for preschoolers and instill healthy lifestyle habits early on so that children may continue these habits as they grow.
