Covid-19 Policies and Procedures

Creating Stability in an Uncertain Time

In September 2020, Montessori Day School of Brooklyn opened its doors for in-person learning during the Covid- 19 Pandemic. Along with our health consultant, we created a plan designed to keep every member of our school community safe and healthy. We follow both the guidelines of the CDC and the New York City Department of Health. Our staff has also been educated in the best practices to prevent the exposure and spread of Covid. 

 

We have redesigned our pick-up and drop-off structure, our facility is cleaned and disinfected daily, and until May 2022 all staff and children wore facial coverings for the duration of the school day. We take the appropriate action if there is a suspected case of Covid on-site. We take our responsibility as a school seriously during this time. We are committed to doing all we can to keep every member of our school community safe and healthy.

With the health and safety of our community in mind, we have committed to Montessori Day School of Brooklyn being a fully vaccinated school environment. This began with a requirement for all staff members. When Covid-19 vaccines became available for children under five, we extended this requirement to all children. This additional form of mitigation has allowed us to transition back to a normal preschool experience for all of our community members.
