Childcare during corona is different from usual. We have to adhere to the guidelines of the Dutch government, the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), the GGD (City Health Service) and the association for our sector BMK.
Based on the guidelines, we have drawn up additional precautions to enable us to open up our childcare facilities in a way that is as healthy and safe as possible.Because every childcare centre is different, each centre has its own arrangements regarding bringing and collecting children, and contact with parents/guardians.
In principle parents/guardians cannot come into the childcare centre. This is why the transfer moment is brief. If more time with staff is needed, this can be done in the ParentApp or online. Only in very exceptional cases and in consultation with the manager is a visit by one parent possible. The use of face mask is not mandatory for visitors, but can be used at one’s discretion. Only if everyone sticks to the arrangements in place, will the childcare centre remain a safe place for the children and our staff.
It is the responsibility of all of us to keep childcare open. This is only possible if everyone abides by the rules. Here are the main rules for bringing and collecting children. These apply to all our childcare centres.
If your child is very ill, call your GP.
The decision tree is a tool to help determine if a child with symptoms can come to childcare.
In addition, the basic rules apply to everyone: Always keep a distance of 1.5 metres from other adults. Read all the basic rules here.
Please note: if a test is mentioned, we refer to a test by the GGD.
If you find it difficult to assess what you need to do in your situation, please contact the pedagogical team or manager of your childcare centre. They’ll be happy to explain. And if we can’t find the answer, we will always consult the GGD.
