COVID 19 Update
OCA is open! We have remained open throughout this crisis to serve our essential families and are proud to say 100% of our staff and families have remained safe! As the nation continues to monitor the spread of the Coronavirus, here are some steps we are taking to help lessen the potential of exposure:
All employees have been instructor to be more vigilant with hand washing. An employee must stand at the sink during hand washing to ensure that the children are following proper hand washing procedures.
We continue to wash and sanitize all toys, equipment, furnishings etc. to reduce the spread of germs. All “mouthed” toys and soiled items will be washed and sanitized immediately before returning to the children.
When we are notified that a child or teacher is sick, we will ask that they obtain a specific diagnosis and advise them to stay at home until symptoms have resolved and they are medically cleared to return to care.
If a child or family travels outside of the county, we must be notified before returning to school. We will check to determine if a self-quarantine is required.
Teach children good cough and sneeze hygiene. Encourage children to use a tissue or their elbow, but not their hands, when they cough or sneeze.
Limit visitors into the classrooms. In order to limit surface contamination, we will be limiting visitors to the classrooms. We will check the temperatures of all children at the door and they will be escorted by staff into the classroom, assisted in putting away belongings, and wash their hands before engaging in classroom activities.
While we understand that this is an unprecedented and trying time for everyone, no matter what, we will continue to take every precaution to keep our learning environment safe, for the health and well-being of our children, families, and employees is our utmost priority.
At Oxford Children's Academy (OCA), our mission is to provide each child with the best possible start in life. A child’s work is their play and our play-based curriculum encourages children to explore the world around them. Through active participation in meaningful play experiences, we hope to instill a sense of wonder, curiosity, and life-long love of learning.
