Peace of mind through COVID-19 (updated July 28 2020) 

As your child returns to care, you want the peace-of-mind to know that you are making a healthy and safe choice for your family. Aspen Hill Montessori is working in close collaboration with Alberta Health Services, The Province of Alberta, Provincial Childcare Licensing and Calgary's best health vendors to ensure our approaches exceed best-in-practice for your family's safety.

The best in health and sanitization practices 

  • Electrostatic fog disinfectant, approved by Health Canada, applied throughout the facility before the start of the learning year, and monthly afterwards

  • Child-safe disinfectant carpet cleaning four times per year

  • Air purifiers in every learning space

  • Hourly sanitization of high-touch locations (doorknobs, entry / exit points) with approved solutions

  • Daily disinfecting and sanitization of all materials, shelving, hard flooring, bathroom touch points

  • Commercial cleaning and sanitization weekly

  • Strict at-home and arrival health check surveys before entry for children and staff, following requirements by Alberta Health Services

  • Temperature check of children and staff three times daily (entry, mid-day, exit) using infrared sensors, 37.5 degree maximum

  • Detailed health monitoring done mid-day for children based on Alberta Health screening list

  • No-attend illness policy

  • Arrival times staggered or done with social distancing protocols

  • One adult per family at drop off and pick up

  • Non-medical masks required by parents and staff at drop off / pick up

  • Arrival and departure protocols for staff entry and exit

  • Frequent handwashing stations throughout the day for children and staff following Alberta Health protocols

  • AHS-approved hand sanitizer available in all classrooms for immediate use after any contact with mucous membranes

  • Social distancing within classrooms and during play as much as possible (i.e. no high touch games, no side-by-side meals, individual tables for work, etc.)

  • Additional protocols as required or recommended by the Chief Medical Officer, Alberta Health Services, and Provincial Childcare Licensing.

We would love to meet with you by ZOOM to review our complete health protocols and health inspections by Alberta Health Services, and share with you the ways we are focused on keeping your family safe. To book, contact registrar@aspenhillmontessori.ca.

In-class services for Fall 2020

Aspen Hill Montessori was one of the first childcare Centres to open for Essential Services support in mid-March, and has been providing on-site learning and childcare since. From advanced health screening to detailed sanitization, we are experts in ensuring your family's safety from COVID-19.

 

Many parents have expressed concern that preschools or public kindergarten programs may not proceed with in-person services for fall. As our Learning Centre operates as a private, licensed childcare under the Province of Alberta, we are guaranteed to be able to offer in-person services for Fall 2020.

We're here to answer your questions about a return to learning in the fall. Contact registrar@aspenhillmontessori.ca.
