COVID has changed the appearance of Community Preschool but not its goals or high standards. Due to the protocols set forth by Governor DeWine and ODJFS, children no longer move to the different
themed- rooms throughout the day. There are to be 9 children enrolled in a class.
Each classroom has been designed to contain a story area, dramatic play area and art center. The large outer hall has become the gross motor room which is referred to as the “noisy” room.
Class starting times are staggered so as to keep the children as socially distanced as possible. Parents drop the children off at the designated area for each class. The children have their temperatures taken, parents are asked a series of questions to make sure the child has no COVID symptoms and then the child enters the building.
NO PARENTS are permitted into the preschool this year.
Children are to wear masks except at snack time. The children appear to handle this requirement very well. They know it is important to do this so school can remain open.
The children are washing their hands many times during the day as well as using hand sanitizer. The bathroom and gross motor room is sanitized after each use. The classroom teachers clean and sanitize all manipulatives used by the children daily.
The registration form for the 2021-2022 school year is now available. Open Registration begins on Monday, February 1. The class offerings remain the same as this year. If the pandemic is controlled and Governor DeWine changes the protocols, additional students can be accepted as well as more classes could be offered.
At this time, the parent-toddler class is on hiatus due to no parents permitted in the school.
Please feel free to contact Community Preschool with additional questions you may have.
