PreK Safety Policies and Procedures
COVID Health and Safety Plan
Our COVID guidelines come from the State of Oregon Early Learning Division. All requirements for COVID-19 safety will be met and, whenever possible, the highest recommendations will be followed. Please note: Program schedules, topics, and format are subject to change due to Covid-19 impacts and guidance.
Classroom Wellbeing and Expectations
NaturePlay classroom is a safe space where students can make mistakes as they learn to navigate social interactions, conflict resolution, identify emotions, and facilitate understanding.
Educators use positive language to help students understand what we would like them to do rather than what not to do.
Educators understand that transitions may be hard some days. However, our school does not have the staffing for 1:1 educator attention for an extended period of the day. (We maintain a 6:1 ratio). Group safety requires that educators are available to the whole group. For the safety and well-being of your student, if they are unable to stay safe with the group, teachers will reach out to discuss how we can best support them.
Oregon law requires proof of immunizations or an exemption, for all children attending schools, preschools, or child-care centers. As a preschool, we are required to provide this information and the overall immunization rates to the Oregon Health Authority Immunization Program administered by the Benton County Health Department. This information is due at the time of enrollment.
