Stepping Stones Preschool will be functioning under an altered structure during the Coronavirus pandemic. We will be following the guidelines requirements of CA Department of Social Services for Child Care Centers as well as the recommendations of SF Department of Public Health.
These recommendations are ongoing and may be updated at any time due to the nature of this virus.
Beginning in October 2020, we will start our FULL-DAY Program from 8:00am-4:20pm // 8:15am-4:35pm // 8:30-4:45pm // 8:45am-5pm.
**ALL of our teachers have had the COVID-19 vaccine and are fully vaccinated.
Classes will NOT mix. We will be creating stable groups of 12 children and two teachers. Teachers will be wearing masks and all of our children are wearing masks (even our 2’s are doing great with it!). Our program will be mostly OUTSIDE (weather and air quality permitting). We will do all of our teaching outside in the community where we are lucky enough to be close to so many locations in Golden Gate Park. Children will be equipped with notebooks and craft boxes (markers, crayons, scissors, glue sticks) to participate in daily science journaling.
We will be running our high quality air filters to the max all day DAILY. If the air quality is “Good” or “Moderate,” we will open all of our windows to circulate the inside air. On days where the air quality is “Unhealthy” or raining, we will keep the children indoors.
If you are interested in our program, please email us and we will provide you with the full reopening plans. For the time being, we will be holding 10am virtual tours on Fridays. Please contact us to schedule a tour.
