Q-dees welcomed our children back to school on the 1st of July 2020 since the Movement Control Order (MCO) was implemented on the 18th of March 2020 by the Government to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Before we open our gates to welcome our bright children, our centres went through thorough sanitisation and disinfection in an effort to ensure that the environment around our children at Q-dees is always safe and clean. Check out how our centres undergo the sanitisation process below:
Q-dees understands your concern over your child’s safety and wellbeing. We have taken extra steps in making sure we abide the guidelines set by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Ministry of Education (MOE) to provide a safe yet fun environment for our children by practising the new normal at Q-dees, such as:
1. Mandatory temperature checks
Every morning upon arrival, the children will go through a few new practices before entering school premises including temperature checks, washing and sanitising hands, and ensuring that they are not showing symptoms of COVID-19. Children with a temperature of 37.5°C and above will be sent home immediately.
2. Stay home if unwell
Parents are also advised to run temperature checks before leaving for school, hence, do not send your child to school should your child’s temperature runs over 37.5°C. If your child or any family members are unwell or exhibit symptoms of COVID-19, seek immediate medical attention at hospitals as listed by the Ministry of Health and stay home until you are healthy.
3. Wear face mask
Provide your child with new face masks to wear to school in order to prevent the risk of catching the disease.
4. Maintaining optimum hygiene
Children will wash and sanitise their hands immediately after temperature checks and after every activity.
5. Social distancing
The children will practise social distancing at all times in school premises by standing and/or sitting 1 metre apart from each other. There will be marking tapes to indicate the 1-metre distance for the children to follow.
6. Sharing of food and utensils are not allowed
During lunch break and/or snack time, the children will be seated accordingly at/on their assigned seats in the classroom for lunch and are not allowed to share food and utensils with their friends.
7. School bags are not allowed
According to the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for preschool announced by the Ministry of Education (MOE), children are not allowed to bring their school bags to school to avoid the risk of cross-contamination and the spread of the disease.
8. Isolation room
Should a child fall sick during school hours, they will be taken into an isolation room provided within school premises. The child’s parents will then be contacted immediately.
With the commencement of the new normal at Q-dees, our centres are doing their best to ensure that your child is learning in a fun yet clean and safe environment when they are in our care. Despite the new environment at the centres, our children have shown tremendous adapting skills on their first day at school:
