Yes. As required by the Ministry of Education and local public health authorities to support contact tracing, a daily health screening process is required for YMCA Before and After School Age Child Care which includes the following:
Before School Care
Families with children in before school care, will be required to complete a health screening upon arriving at program. To make for a quicker screening process in the morning, we ask families to conduct a wellness observation with your child prior to departing your home. Please note, if your child has even 1 symptom, please keep them home from program to ensure safety for the other children and our educators.
After School Care
As an additional layer of safety, your child’s educator will complete a wellness check with each child when they arrive for the afternoon program.
