Mask Protocols
Instructors and children will wear masks throughout our day, except when physical distancing can be guaranteed, i.e. during snack. We will include activities and times, during the day, that allow for breaks from masks. We will also build-in child-friendly rituals and supports for children. Families are responsible for providing their child with masks.

To prepare children, parents need to practice mask wearing with them before programs begin. This will ensure that your youngster comes prepared, that mask wearing feels familiar, and that your child can manage their mask independently. There are many different styles of masks available - it is important for parents to determine which style their child can put-on and remove independently.

  • Face masks must cover both the nose and mouth fully.
  • Children must practice, prior to the start of programs, how to independently put their masks on and how to remove them in order to only touch the ear loops or ties.
  • Children must practice not touching their face covering while wearing it.
  • Children must practice not touching their eyes, nose or mouth both while wearing their mask as well as during mask-free times.
  • Children's must sanitize their hands (1) after they remove their face masks, (2) prior to each time they put their face masks back on and again (3) after they put their face mask back on.
  • Children's hands will be sanitized if they touch their faces or face coverings.
  • Children must carry their own supply of sanitizer each day in their trail pack for use when putting and taking off their masks

Learning Outside must protect all families and all instructors. To do so, children must comply with our mask guidelines. In the unlikely event that a child will not comply and does not respond to instructor requests or reminders, parents will be called and the child will need to be picked-up.

Children, parents and/or their designated driver must wear masks throughout drop-off and pick-up, apart from infants and siblings younger than 2-years-old.
