Play and Learn Families,
This has been a very difficult time for everyone and the way it looks, we will be dealing with COVID-19 well into the summer and possibly again this fall. I am constantly on the lookout for new information and guidelines to help navigate our way through this, keep everyone as safe as possible, and financially survive as a daycare business that my staff and families can return to.
Besides making sure we are able to adhere to new safety standards, I also must consider our ability to procure PPE and safety tools, cleaning products, and healthy food, which are all essential in providing the quality care and safe environment that your children and my staff deserve.
With all of this in mind, and with many reports telling us Iowa still has not quite reached the peak of this pandemic, I have made the heart-breaking decision to postpone our reopening once again. Our new reopening goal will be the day after Memorial Day, Tuesday May 26. I know we are all anxious to get back to some sense of normalcy, I hope by May 26, this will look more possible.
Thank you for all the support we have received through emails and messages and thank you to all who continue to purchase Play and Learn t-shirts as well! Shirt purchases will go toward paying rent and utilities while we are closed.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are not in the office every day, but we do check email a couple of times per week.
