COVID-19 Camp Information
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, WMS has carefully considered guidelines from the CDC and the state of Delaware (including the Office of Child Care Licensing and Department of Health & Social Services) throughout all of our planning.
Please review our plan, policies and FAQ below. Should you have further questions, please reach out to Tracey Gable, Director of Montessori Enrichment.
Camp Montessori COVID-19 Plan & Policies for Families
Updated December 17, 2020
This policy has been established based on guidance from the Delaware Office of Child Care Licensing. Families will be informed as guidelines and restrictions change. This policy will also be updated, with the date of the latest update noted above.
The purpose of sharing this information is to communicate Camp Montessori's plan to help ensure the health and safety of all campers, staff and families. There is an inherent risk that viruses will spread among campers and staff, including but not limited to COVID-19. While we cannot eliminate this risk, we have adopted policies to help reduce the risk.
In preparation for the start of camp, a complete cleaning and disinfection procedure will be conducted by our facilities crew. The facilities crew continues daily cleaning and disinfection procedures, and our entire staff has received training that requires them to follow the implementation of cleaning and disinfection of classroom surfaces and materials. In October, we upgraded our HVAC filters to MERV 13 filters.
We have adopted our cleaning and disinfection procedures from the information shared by OSHA, the CDC, the Delaware Office of Child Care Licensing, and the Delaware Division of Public Health. As best practices are shifted, so will our practice. Our staff is trained to follow the guidelines and will explain and model safety, physical distancing, handwashing and hygiene procedures to students in an age-appropriate manner. In order for this plan to be most effective, Camp Montessori staff and families must comply with the plan outlined below and any future changes in this plan.
