We are Essential, and we will remain OPEN!
Tune in and hear updates from the Owner, President and Administrators about the curriculum and covid-19!
Dear BCM Families,
As we prepare to open on May 15th, I wanted to outline the precautions we are taking to provide a healthy environment for your children and our staff members. We will be working closely with medical professionals as well as Department of Social Services to stay informed on all recommended procedures and will follow them accordingly.
We have also taken the precaution to form a relationship with a medical hospital. Everyone has been seen by a physician and their medical team will be testing our staff before the start of school and will continue follow up care to ensure our teachers stays healthy. We feel this was a very important step to take. Our staff is like family and their well being is of the utmost importance to us.
*All staff will be tested for the Covid19 virus the week before school opens and must receive a clean bill of health before being allowed back in the classroom
*Any staff member that shows sign of illness will not be able to return to work until tested negative for the virus and have recovered fully from any illness they may have
*Each child and teacher will have their temperature taken each morning at the drop locations. (We have purchased touch free infrared thermometers for all classrooms) We will recheck again every afternoon to monitor for any signs of fever. We will also perform a wellness check throughout the day to keep an eye out for any signs of illness.
*We will allow siblings to attend the same classroom if parents prefer
*Any child that shows signs of sickness must be picked up immediately and cannot return until all symptoms are gone for at least 72 hours
*There will be additional tables in the classrooms to allow for more physical distancing
*The janitorial service will disinfect each night including doorknobs and frequently touched surfaces
*Our staff will frequently sanitize their classrooms with EPA approved disinfectants
*Hand-washing will be required frequently for both children and teachers. We have installed sinks in all classrooms and will have touch free soap dispensers
*We ask that parents utilize valet drop off to minimize exposure to our school. We will have extended drop off hours to make this service available to all families. If you feel as though you need to walk your child to his or her class, we will temperature check you at the door and require you to wear a mask.
*We have installed touch free hand sanitizer stations through the school
*All children will remain with their teachers and class throughout the school day (8am-4pm) in order to reduce the risk of exposure. If your child needs to stay for afterschool care, from (4pm to 6pm) they may be on the outdoor playground with children who are not in their classrooms
*We will continue to provide snack unless you prefer to bring your own
We are so excited to welcome our families back! Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Looking forward to seeing soon.
It is Beach Cities Montessori School's goal to create an environment where each child feels safe, valued, and accepted. We believe children learn best when they are actively involved with their environment; engaging with the meaningful activities that promote social, emotional, and physical growth. We promote Dr. Maria Montessori's method of helping children in the total development of their personality. Our environment will create opportunities for each child to experience the roles of both the observer and role-model. We foster a love of learning and encourage the children to become independent, self-confident, and caring individuals.
