We hope that this letter finds you well. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted many of the services we have all come to enjoy, and Voyager enrichment programs are not immune. However, we continue provide childcare for Ouray County families. The cost is $4 per hour pro-rated to the nearest 15 minutes and $40 per day. We will only provide childcare on full days if we have at least 5 children registered a week in advance. Because protocols will limit our class size to 12 children, we are rolling things out differently:
● We are currently accepting enrollment forms. Remember that each June, every child must have a new enrollment form completed and returned with updated immunization records before attending.
● If you have questions regarding the enrollment or registration process, please call Danelle at 970-318-6782 or Kelsey at 480-254-1392 immediately.
● We remain committed to offering enriching activities that foster resiliency and connection in youth as well as keep your children safe and secure in our care. For more information regarding daily practices and protocols, please read on.
Executive Order D2020 035 issued on April 14, 2020, mandates that if a facility has a positive or suspected case of COVID-19 in a child, parent of a child, or staff member at the child care, the facility must close the facility or affected portion of the facility for no less than 24 hours, implement protocols for responding to COVID-19 pursuant to CDPHE guidance and in partnership with their local public health agency. Staff and children in the same group as the positive or suspected case and anyone the case interacted with at facility should be screened for symptoms.
o We will use a thermal reader to check temperatures upon arrival and periodically through the day. We will screen attendees and family members for symptoms before check-in.
o On full days, from 7:45 to 9:30, there will be curbside drop off. After screening and check in, children will put on their mask, enter through the south doors, put their belongings contained in a backpack away, and wash their hands. No parents or guardians will be allowed inside the Voyager building.
o Children and staff will use face masks that will be washed at the end of the day.
o All toys and activity supplies to be used for the day will be out for use on that day and sanitized before being put away.
o We continue to use Standard Precautions every day, with added vigor in daily disinfecting and sanitizing all hard surfaces and frequently touched items.
o We engage all participants in maintaining safe distances, hand washing, and clean up.
