TLC Centre Inc. – Covid-19 Response

Dear Parents & Guardians,

The Board of Directors met on Monday, March 16th to discuss the recent COVID-19 outbreak. We discussed the adjustment and implementation of policies, procedures, and protocols for the centre. TLC Centre Inc. will take all necessary measures to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19. Therefore, all children and staff who show flu-like symptoms, have recently traveled, or been in contact with someone who has traveled, are asked to refrain from attending the centre. It is recommended to self-isolate for 14 days.

 

Effective March 16th, and until further notice, if families choose to not bring their child(ren) to TLC Centre Inc., the daily fees will be waived.

 

TLC Centre Inc. will make every effort to keep the child care program open without compromising the health, safety, and wellbeing of children and adults. However, the centre will tentatively close if:

· It has been decided that the facility cannot operate in compliance with the license issued by the Manitoba Child Care Program;

· OR if it has been decided that the facility cannot ensure the health, safety, and well-being of the children and adults;

· OR if ordered to do so by the Provincial or Federal government

 

We are recommending that parents/guardians have a backup child care plan in the event that the government mandates that all child care centres close. Child care will also depend on staff availability. Children who are showing signs of illness, will be sent home. All decisions are subject to change.

 

It is important that we all take proactive and preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to keep you all updated on any new information. Thank-you for your patience and understanding at this time.

Sincerely,

 

TLC Centre Inc. Board of Directors
