Procedures & Protocols

Please self-screen
  • Screening has not gone away. It’s now your responsibility, but it has not become acceptable to come to programs with coughs and runny noses. We have started to observe these symptoms in children attending our program. Please be prepared for questions from staff if you or your children appear to have symptoms.
Masks are not required unless you are symptomatic
  • Wearing masks helps us protect the babies in our programs, who can not wear masks, and our staff¬† who keep programs open and running.
Sanitize or wash your hands and the hands of your children
  • We will remind you on arrival and sorry if it’s a pain, but we expect you to do it.
  • Hand washing prevents transmission of viral and bacterial infections that spread very easily through the hands and shared items.
Please hang bags and other personal belongings on our coat hooks.
  • Please keep your personal belongings off our floors and mats where children are playing.
Bring a lock in case you must leave your stroller outside.
  • Very sadly, a stroller was stolen from our front lawn at Kimbourne last year. Unfortunately, opportunists are always on the hunt for valuables they can sell. Stroller parking at our Terry Fox site is exclusively outdoors, and at Kimbourne, the stroller parking room fills up some days, so come prepared with a lock.
  • Don’t leave personal items in your stroller. Bring them in and hang them up.
Every adult attending our EarlyON programs must use their personal QR code to sign in. Adults may NOT share a QR code.
  • We use the KEyON system to track attendance. It’s very secure.
  • Address and phone number are only needed to create a KEyON account. You can do this in advance of your first visit or when you arrive.
  • Postal codes and dates of birth are required to add children to your KEyON account.
  • We are required to track and report to our funders how many child and adult visits we receive.¬†
  • Please remember, all your information is kept private. We never share or sell your personal information.
