  • 10. What does drop-off/pick-up look like?

  • Most providers are not allowing people in the building, other than staff and children. Understandably, this can lead to some anxiety for parents and guardians who may be interested in touring the location, children who may be unfamiliar with the location, or for other siblings in the vehicle. Many drop-off protocols include a touchless temperature check and a brief health questionnaire of the child. We recommend connecting with specific providers to inquire about their procedures.
