Current Newsletter



July 2020
I was fortunate enough to receive a second 1-month grant for our daycare.  From June 22 to July 17, your normal daycare contract will again be suspended and your child can attend daycare for the days you need childcare and you only need to pay for the days you used.  Tuition will be $43 per day for children under the age of 2 and $38 a day for children over the age of 2.  I am glad to be able to help some of you who are experiencing a decrease in work time right now or are working from home.  The original plan from the state of Minnesota was to include only these 3 rounds of grants for daycares (I did not receive one in the first round) but if they decide to continue this program, I will continue to apply for the assistance to help you.  
The daycare will be closed for my vacation the week of July 6-10 and the week of July 27-31.  There is no tuition charged when I am on vacation.
Due to changes in activities from Covid, the April 17 date the daycare was scheduled to be closed has been moved to Friday, September 18, and the October 2 daycare closure has been cancelled completely.  The daycare WILL BE CLOSED on Friday, September 18, but WILL BE OPEN on Friday, October 2.  There will be no tuition charged for my vacation day on Sept. 18.
Daycares have received a new protocol chart for Covid and illness exclusion from daycare.  Unfortunately, it still shows exclusion times for ill children and their siblings for up to 14 days even with no positive test results for Covid.  Please read it over and realize we will need to abide by the policy unless or until a new one is given.  It is included with this newsletter.
Like most other businesses, daycares are now required to have a written Covid preparedness plan.  It needs to be posted and given to parents.  Your copy is included in this newsletter.
During the 2 1/2 weeks in July the daycare is open, the children will spend the portion of the week before the 4th celebrating the 4th of July, one week celebrating all the fun things we can do at the beach in the summer, and one week talking about the kinds of animals and work that are done on a farm.
