Coronavirus Response Plan
June 5, 2020
DCFS and the State of Illinois are now allowing childcare centers and preschools to open. We have been informed by DCFS and the State of Illinois that we are allowed to open our doors again for the 2020-2021 school year. We are working to submit our plans for re-opening which will follow the new protocols.
This is a quote from the document we received:
“Many childcare homes and centers have been open and providing emergency care to the children of essential workers during the COVID-19 State of Emergency. To date, Illinois has not seen significant transmission of COVID-19 in childcare settings, which is encouraging evidence that childcare can be provided safely.”
We feel that the procedures and protocols laid out by the State are things we can accomplish and will still allow us to keep the integrity of a normal preschool classroom while keeping our students safe and healthy.
We are currently investigating the best ways to implement the new procedures and protocols and will keep you informed.
We want to assure families that the health, safety and well-being our preschool children is of the utmost important to all of us. It is foremost in our plans and discussions for the new school year. We will continue to meet over the summer and discuss what is needed to keep our children safe and healthy this fall as we implement the new procedures and protocols required by our State.
Pray for us to have wisdom as we make decisions and rejoice with us as we anticipate coming back together at Wheaton Bible Preschool for the 2020-2021 school year!
We thank you so much for your grace, support and patience during these unprecedented times.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you might have.
