COVID19 Updates for Shoberry's Daycare Centres

Click here to review Shoberry's COVID-19 Policy and Procedures.

In the news you have heard that the provincial government has outlined the stages for reopening as follows:

  • Phase 1 – workplaces that can immediately meet public health guidance and some outdoor spaces (e.g. parks, golf courses, marinas);
  • Phase 2 – workplaces based on risk assessments this will include Child Care Centers, service industry and retail;
  • Phase 3 – further relaxing of restrictions on public gatherings and reopen all work places "responsibly"

Ontario is now in Phase 3 – each phase could last at least two to four weeks. As of September 8, 2020, Ontario is pausing further reopening of businesses facilities and organizations for 28 days, to allow the government time to assess the impacts of Stage 3. The Ministry of Education Child Care Branch, along with Public Health are continuing to monitor child care to ensure the safest environment. As announced May 19, 2020 changes to the service we provide may look at little different.

  • Mandatory staff, family and child screening daily (questionnaire and temperature)
  • Access to center will be restricted to child and staff only, parents will drop off outdoors
  • Only equipment and toys that can be disinfected (e.g. No stuffed animals) will be in use
  • Entire center will be cleaned/disinfected prior to entry, at the end of the day and regularly throughout the day
  • Maintaining social distancing where possible (e.g. staff break room)
  • Public health unit will approve an outbreak plan

I want to assure you that in the meantime, we are doing everything we can to ensure that the appropriate health and safety measures are in place. Shoberry's Daycare Centers have been very proactive with regards to Health and Safety measures, developed procedures, policies and protocols to keep everyone safe and healthy while at the center. These policies are developed and approved by the local health unit; they are available on our website.

As always please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Kind Regards,

Shoberry's Daycare Centre was founded in 1998; Shoberry's 2 Daycare Centre opened its doors in 2006. Currently both facilities provide care for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartens, and school age children up to the age of 12.

At Shoberry's Daycare Centres, we believe deeply in the value of inquiry play. During inquiry play, children use their senses to discover and manipulate the things in their environment. They interact with other children and adults. They imitate and experiment with roles and means of expression. Through the exploration of their environment, children begin to form the concepts on which all future learning will be based.

Shoberry's Daycare Centres strive to provide a stimulating and nurturing inclusive environment that challenges and fosters a capable child's curiosity of the world and potential for learning by engaging him/her through child-directed activities. The program focuses on both the competent child and the family, recognizing the value, worth and dignity of each individual. Safe and stimulating environments are crucial, enhancing a child's full development. Our centres provide a combination of a stimulating and nurturing environment that focuses on opportunities for learning through a variety of hands-on, play based inquiry experiences.

The centres are an integral part of the community. The program focuses on both the competent child and the family, recognizing the value, worth and dignity of each individual. It is our intention to provide quality care for the children through the use of trained, qualified staff who provide a warm and stimulating environment geared to each child's own interests, abilities and needs.

I am happy to be in partnership with our parents and our staff, I want to create something memorable for our children at Shoberry's Daycare Centers.
