Center Time Procedures:
Students will have daily center based play.
Centers include, but are not limited to: library, blocks, dramatic play, math, art, writing, play-dough, etc.
Each pod will have its own set of centers that can be used by them as their schedule allows.
Each center has a maximum number of students that can play there at a time, ranging from 2-4 students.
Students will rotate through centers for a designated time. Once a rotation is over, students will clean up and participate in a "Brain break" or teacher-led song while each center is cleaned by the staff member.
Centers will be cleaned/sanitized daily using a bleach solution at the end of the day.
ANY toy that is put in a child's mouth or sneezed on will be removed from the center and placed in a “sanitizer bin” until that item can be properly sanitized by staff.
Every student will have individual and labeled containers for play-dough, sensory items, and art/writing utensils like crayons, markers, etc.
This will ensure that we are allowing students to play and still be creative, while also trying to maintain the cleanest play spaces possible.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE PROCEDURES WILL CHANGE ACCORDING TO THE GUIDANCE WE RECEIVE FROM OUR GOVERNING BODIES.
