Sanitization stations, temperature screening stations and the 6-feet physical distancing protocols were seen in some early childhood centres across St. Kitts as they reopen their doors on Monday.
While ZIZ’s cameras were at the Industrial Site Day Care Centre an assessment team from the Ministry of Education came to appraise the centre.
Resource Teacher in the Early Childhood Development Unit, Andrea Liddie explained that the task of the assessment team is not only to give approval for these centres but also to make sure they are complying with the Covid-19 safety protocols.
She also gave her assessment for the centres the team has visited so for.
The Industrial Site Day Care Centre welcomed 32 children upon reopening and Supervisor of the centre, Ayesha Bryan- Bass said that the parents complied with the protocols noting that they were notified in advance.
Assistant Supervisor at the Industrial Site Daycare Centre, Icilma Knight explained the procedure for parents dropping off their children.
She also said that practicing social distancing among children is challenging but the teachers and staff members try to isolate each group of children to minimize mixing with other classes
