Take a look inside our often changing world here at Step by Step and the adjustments the center has made to keep all children and staff safe.
Your child may soon be returning to Step By Step or coming to Step by Step for the first time. Things change rapidly as we try to respond to the directives from the COVID19 Task Force. We want to create protocols which will keep everyone – children, their parents and staff – safe. We know it can be difficult to find the right words and ways to talk to children about the unusual situation we face. We want to give them information that is appropriate for their age and most importantly, we want them to know that they are safe and that we will take care of them.
In order to help you do this we are providing you with a little story which will help you and your child get ready for the process you will find right now when you arrive at Step By Step.
We suggest you read the book with your child the night before and the morning of your arrival at Step By Step. Point at either the pictures or the words as you go. Pause before turning each page to wait and see if your child has a question or anything to add. Only answer the question being asked rather than giving too much information. Feel free to add a few personalized details into the story as you go, referring to people and activities that the child will relate to best. Read the story as often as you want and as long as you find it useful.
And remember…things might change and if that’s the case, we will send you another story to help you and your child to adapt your expectations. We also have stories on our website which explain our current situation and the virus to children of various ages. Feel free to check the site and print or scroll through the story which suits you and your child best.
We look forward to having your child with us. We really miss being with all your wonderful little children.
