Loyola University Chicago Preschool is dedicated to providing a healthy, safe environment for children, staff and families. We adhere to IDPH and DCFS protocols for child care programs as well as Loyola University guidelines and protocols.
The preschool has always followed good health practices including handwashing, “catching” coughs in elbows, good ventilation, sanitizing and cleaning of surfaces and toys. We are requiring:
- All children to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before starting
- Adherence to CDC protocols including testing for sickness symptoms, masking when considered a close contact, and isolation if testing positive
- Mask-wearing for student workers who have increased exposure on campus, and optional mask-wearing for staff and children
Equally important, preschool parents make a commitment to support and participate in current CDC guidelines regarding Covid-19 and other health concerns. Parents and preschool staff very much work together to keep our community healthy.
