Coronavirus Response

Imagine Early Learning Center has always made health and safety a top priority. In 2021, that is more important than ever. Our centers are taking extensive precautions to address Covid 19. We are following the guidelines of local and state Departments of Health, the CDC, and our local licensing agencies and expanding our health and safety protocols. Out number one goal is to keep our families and staff safe.

As of October 1, 2021, Imagine has implemented a Mandated Covid Vaccine Policy for all employees.In accordance with Imagine Early Learning Center’s duty to provide and maintain a workplace that is free of known hazards and the Executive Order signed by President Biden, we are adopting a Mandatory Covid-19 Vaccine Policy to safeguard the health of our children, employees, visitors, and the community at large from COVID-19. This Policy will comply with all applicable laws and is based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Imagine’s stakeholders, such as the NYC DOE (New York City Department of Education), CUNY (The City University of New York), Mt. Sinai Hospital and GSA (the General Services Administration of the federal government). In addition, the federal EEO laws under the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) do not prevent Imagine Early Learning Centers from requiring all employees physically entering the workplace to be vaccinated for COVID-19.

Imagine requires all employees to provide proof of full vaccination status no later than December 8, 2021.

Child and Family Protocols

Drop Off/Pick Up
Daily Screening for all Families

We expect all parents to complete the COVID-19 Health Screening One-Time Attestation Form to attest they will self-screen daily. These forms are maintained at the child care center for record keeping. However, Screeners must still ask the following questions and check them off on the COVID-19 Safety Protocols Checklist.

Answering “yes” to any of these questions will result in exclusion from the center according to protocols.

Temperature check will be conducted upon arrival to the child care center by a designated employee, “Screener”, wearing a mask/face covering that covers both the nose and mouth, to include gloves and a face shield when there is an increased risk of hazard.
