Sunshine Day Camp COVID-19 Updates

COVID-19 Update

Sunshine Day Camp strives to follow all mandates per State and local County health orders.  Please note that these orders change regularly (more restrictive and less restrictive depending on infection rate/tier).  As a licensed childcare, Sunshine Day Camp does its best to review health orders regularly and adapt to updated mandates and recommendations..  These regulations may help reduce exposure to, and spread of, COVID-19.

CURRENT STATUS:  There are no significant mandates impacting our program currently. Operation is normal at this time.

While at the facility, children, parents, and staff are expected to follow all current county mandates as specified for childcare programs.

Safe & FUN

Sunshine Day Camp has always been focused on maintaining a balance of being safe and fun.  Even when mandates require modification to our program, we work diligently on creative ways to have FUN with the children.  So, even if/when things look different (due to the pandemic) we are still having FUN with the kids!

Fluid Plan of Operation

Sunshine Day Camp closely monitors and complies with COVID-19 health orders from LA County Department of Public Health.  Since health orders can change from week to week, Sunshine Day Camp does its best to update policy as we receive them, and as best interpreted.  We ask for your patience and understanding as we do our best to implement any required mandate.

While following the regulations may help reduce exposure it does not guarantee that a staff or child will not be exposed to COVID-19 or sickened from it.

Daily Health Screening & Self-Certification

Parents are asked to be vigilant by looking for COVID-19 symptoms of their child by properly pre-screening and self-certifying they are well before bringing them to the facility (e.g. no fever or other illness symptoms).

Staff and children who are displaying ANY COVID-19 symptoms of illness will NOT be permitted to enter the building.  If a staff or child has a family member (living in the same house as the staff or child) that has ANY symptoms of COVID-19 will also not be allowed to enter the building until proper isolation is completed (see COVID-19 Plan of Operation for details).

Anyone with suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 in their household must remain out of our centers per CDC and Los Angeles County order. 

Modified Hours of Operation

In order to properly staff, follow local/State mandates, Sunshine Day Camp may temporarily modify the hours of operation and programming.  We will provide as much notice as possible if these modifications are necessary.

Face Mask Requirement

There is NO current mandate regarding masking at childcare centers or schools.  Currently it is “optional”. 

If a new mandate is provided, per LA County health order, all persons over the age of 2 are require persons to wear a face mask when in public places.  Unless there is a disability or other medical reason, all staff and children must wear a face mask while at the facility.  Even when required, masks are removed during portions of the day including mealtimes, and during solo physical exertion outside with proper physical distancing.

If your child is unable wear a face mask, due to a medical reason, please notify your director for approval prior to showing up to the center.  A doctor’s note will be required if your child is unable to wear a face mask.  Parents are encouraged to send a spare face covering as a backup for their child.

Modified School Support

The COVID-19 Pandemic required schools across the nation to make significant modifications to classroom schedules.

Currently all the schools we service in Santa Clarita are open for full day instruction.  If the school schedules are modified again, Sunshine Day Camp will adapted the program so that we can support remote learning experience, and provided daily childcare.  No matter what happens with school schedules, WE ARE HERE TO HELP!

Positive COVID-19 Cases

In the event that there is a known or suspected case of COVID-19 within our center, we will notify LA County health officials and follow their suggested guidance, which may include quarantine of close contacts.

When required by LADPH, families of the center will be notified of positive COVID-19 cases, that we are made aware of.  Due to privacy requirements, names of individuals with known or suspected COVID-19 infection will not be released.
