Prevention Measures to Reduce the Spread of COVID-19 in a Child Care Setting


Many industries have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, but few more than childcare. Many centers have closed temporarily or permanently, and all have faced challenges in providing a safe environment for children while maintaining business viability.

Care-a-lot was founded in 1991 by Carol and Bob Moore. Because of their strong reputation for quality care and early childhood education, the Moores were welcomed to assume the operations of other area childcare programs over the past 20 years. In 2017, Care-a-lot was purchased by David Kolczynski, who is committed to maintaining the high standards of care at each site. Care-a-lot is now serving families in six locations in the Greater Rochester region, from North Greece to Canandaigua.

In this presentation, we will show how Care-a-lot created, implemented and monitored policies and protocols to effectively manage the spread of COVID-19 in our childcare facilities, and the role that our company culture played in the success of these efforts. In addition to reviewing the methodologies, we will present data related to the effectiveness of the policies in controlling the spread across our multiple centers and differing age groups. There will be time for questions and discussion after the presentation.
