We look forward to hearing from you over the next few months.  

Nursery and Preschool Guidelines and Requirements

The guidelines for Preschool programs are very similar to those for elementary and middle school, but there are some key differences. Any requirements not mentioned here are the same as they are in the guidelines for schools. 

In Class

    • All adults should maintain at least six feet of distance from each other unless the safety of the core activity requires a shorter distance. 
    • Adults can not break six feet of distance without a mask, but it is highly recommended that they wear masks throughout the day to increase the level of security. 
    • Adults must wear masks whenever interacting with students, regardless of the distance between the two. 
    • As of now, group sizes for children are capped at fifteen in a specific area, excluding adults (for whom there is no cap presently.)
      • Reasonable steps must be taken to reconfigure spaces to limit overall room density to 15 or fewer children. 
    • Cohorts should maintain minimal contact with other cohorts. 
    • Employees should not “float” between different groups of children, barren unforeseen circumstances. 
    • Ventilation should still be increased to the maximum capacity possible.
    • Children should be separated as much as possible, but normal social interaction is permissible under guidance for childcare and acknowledges the necessity of social interaction in early childhood.

In Transition

  • Measures should be taken to eliminate, or at least reduce to the greatest extent possible, bi-directional foot traffic in the hallways. 
  • Pick-up and drop-off should be staggered and at separate points to the extent feasible. 
  • Parents and guardians should be discouraged from spending any amount of time in the facility. If they do, they should be screened like any teacher entering the building.
  • Early childhood students must still arrive wearing masks and wear a mask while in the hallways and bathrooms. 
  • The classroom is the only area masks may be removed inside of the school.


  • Employees and children absolutely must perform hand hygiene:
      • Upon arrival to the school. 
      • Between all activities. 
      • After using the restroom. 
      • Before eating. 
      • Before departing. 
    • Frequently touched surfaces, including toys and art supplies, should be regularly disinfected using soap and water. 
      • It is mandatory that these are disinfected at the very least after every shift, daily, or more frequently as needed. Commonly used items should be disinfected after each use. 
    • The school must implement measures to limit the use of toys that cannot be sanitized (i.e. dolls, puppets etc.) 
    • Children should be strongly encouraged not to bring toys from home. If they are brought, they must not be shared. 
    • Measures must be taken to limit the sharing of personal items. 
    • Tables are permissible, but the number of children seated at a table, must be reduced for safety.
    • Carpets are permitted but should be thoroughly cleaned with carpet cleaner each night.

NYS COVID-19 Contact Tracing

In the event of a positive COVID-19 case, it is imperative that proper contact tracing occurs. THE FIRST STEP IN CONTACT TRACING is to notify the county level health department that you have a positive case in the building. COVID-19 is transmitted at a significantly higher rate than most communicable diseases and these measures must be taken to limit its spread. For elementary schools, if there is no movement of students, it is advised that the entire class be quarantined in the event of one student testing positive. For after care programs, sports, clubs, and any environment with changing classes, contact tracing is critical so that an exorbitant amount of students are not forced into isolation.

A close contact is currently defined by the CDC as somebody who:

  • Lives with the case.
  • Was within 6 feet of the contact for at least 15 minutes.
  • Had direct physical contact with the case.
  • Had direct physical contact with a case’s secretions, like used tissues.

All close contacts must be ascertained and contacted as quickly as possible and told to quarantine and self-monitor for signs and symptoms for fourteen days.

To provide quick and reliable contact tracing, each environment will have mandatory and enforced seating charts or stations.

If a sign or symptom of COVID-19 manifests in a close contact, he or she should receive a COVID-19 test.

When communicating with a close contact, the contact tracer may not disclose the identity of the positive case.


For each close contact, a contact tracer should follow these steps to maximize the effect of their calls.

Introduce yourself and provide the following information

  • That you are working with their school.
  • Make sure that they are aware that they are at risk of becoming sick themselves.
  • Explain that the call will probably last between ten and twenty minutes.

Walk them through the symptoms of COVID-19 and have them make sure they aren’t experiencing any. Symptoms to ask about include:

  • Fever (or temperature over 100 degrees if a thermometer is handy.
  • Fatigue.
  • Muscle pain and aching.
  • Cough.
  • Loss of taste or smell.
  • Difficulty breathing.
  • Headache.
  • Sore throat.

If the contact is experiencing any of the following symptoms, they should immediately seek emergency care:

  • Bluish lips or face.
  • Faster breathing.
  • Trouble drawing breath.
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest.
  • New confusion.
  • Difficulty waking up.

If any of these symptoms are present, the contact should immediately seek a COVID-19 test

If no symptoms are present, the contact must still quarantine and self-monitor for 14 days. Make sure the contact understands the rules of quarantine completely. These include:

  • Staying alone as often as possible, even apart from family members.
  • If a case must be around people, even family, they must wear a mask.

Make sure the contact can identify any problems that might arise in quarantine and provide potential solutions to those problems.

Once they understand how to properly quarantine, ask if they have any questions. They probably will.

Remind them to seek a COVID-19 test and isolate if they experience any symptoms.

Check-in with cases and contacts regularly to keep tabs on their condition.
