JOIN THE CLUB

Transitioning into elementary schools is a big step. Even if a big brother or sister leads the way, change is both exciting and challenging. Club Kinder is here to help. Our program is an extension to the Carlsbad Unified School District’s Kindergarten curriculum and is designed to give students a strong start in school and in life.

Curriculum

Enrichment Activities

Approach STEAM subjects in an engaging, age-appropriate way to foster creativity and a love for learning

English Language Arts

Develop a greater vocabulary, enunciation, and confidence in speaking with language-focused activities

Socialize

Develop an understanding of relationships, sharing, and communication skills with other young learners

Full-time Support

Be supported by experienced staff that care and have the time to nurture and guide successful habits

Begin the Elementary Exploration!

At Club Kinder, your student will learn and develop life skills and be given every opportunity to succeed at school. The convenient onsite location and flexible schedule that welcomes both morning and afternoon TK/K students, extends Kindergarten to a full-day exploration! In addition, it is the only Kindergarten program in Carlsbad that gives 100% of its proceeds back to the Carlsbad Unified School District for K-12 programs in music, STEAM, and educational innovation. Your student will benefit for years to come!

Engaging, Experienced Staff

The care of every student is our top priority. Our experienced staff is licensed through the State of California and we guarantee a student-staff ratio of 14:1. Every student is given attention and opportunity to have a safe, fun, and inspiring experience. Parents are encouraged to collaborate about progress along the way. In addition, staff members participate in ongoing training in curriculum, student behavior and First Aid/CPR. 

Safety is a Priority!

The procedures outlined comply with the Center for Disease Control guidelines for the State of California and are aligned with the Carlsbad Unified School District. We will continually monitor guidelines, update these procedures, and inform you of any changes.

Signing In

We will check temperatures and conduct health screenings daily. Students or employees with temperatures 100 degrees or higher will not be admitted.

Drop off and pick up is intended to be brief and parents are asked not to enter classrooms. Social distancing is required.

Handwashing is highly recommended for all family members prior to drop off and when they return home.

Class Sizes & Social Distancing

We will follow CDC guidelines and update our protocols with their requirements.

Face Coverings Policy

Students, staff, and visitors must wear face coverings when indoors. Masks are not required when outdoors.

COVID-19 Mitigation & Prevention Measures
What measures will be implemented on campus to ensure the safety of staff and students?

Cleaning and Disinfecting:

Kids Care/SOAR will take essential actions to create a physical environment that promotes student and staff safety through established protocols and procedures. These will include daily disinfection of areas used by students and staff and focus on high-touch surfaces.

Face Coverings:

All students and staff are required to wear masks indoors.

Hygiene:

Hygiene practices are reviewed regularly with students and staff. We teach and reinforce washing hands, avoiding contact with one’s eyes, nose, and mouth, and covering coughs and sneezes. We have hand sanitizers in every room and high-traffic areas at every site. Kids Care/SOAR will continue to follow the California Department of Public Health guidelines in collaboration with the San Diego County Public Health Agency for current guidelines on health measures.

What will happen if a staff member or student develops Covid-19 symptoms while on campus?

If a staff member develops symptoms relevant to the Covid-19 virus, the staff member will be sent home. If a student develops symptoms, the parent or guardian will be notified, and the student will be isolated and supervised in a separate area until he or she can be picked up.

Will they be required to be tested for COVID-19?

Testing will not be required. However, symptomatic staff members and students will not be allowed to return until they meet one of the following:

Proof of negative viral test result (PCR only) if both fever and symptoms are gone (without fever-reducing meds) for 72 hours; or

10 days from the day symptom(s) first appeared, AND improved symptoms and no fever (or fever reducing meds) for the last 72 hours; or

A licensed MD/DO/NP/PA (who manages the condition) confirms in writing the diagnosis of a chronic condition, and that the symptoms are unrelated to COVID-19.

Will parents, students, and staff be made aware if someone on campus tests positive for COVID-19?

Yes, following California Department of Public Health, we document incidents of possible exposure and notify local health officials, staff and families, immediately of any positive case of Covid-19. We maintain confidentiality, as required under FERPA and state law related to the privacy of educational records.

Will Kids Care/SOAR be closed for 14 days if a student or staff member tests positive for Covid-19?

What if a family member of a student or staff tests positive?

In each instance, we will work with public health on whether we need to close. We will review context, contacts, and exposure to others to inform necessary next steps.

When a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19 and has exposed others, we will implement the following steps:
• In consultation with the local public health department, we will decide whether the closure is warranted, including the length of time necessary, based on the risk level as determined by the local public health officer.
• Additional areas of the school visited by the COVID-19 positive individual may need to be closed temporarily for cleaning and disinfection.
• Maintain regular communications with the local public health department.

What if a family member that lives in the same home with a student or staff member tests positive for Covid-19?

Staff and students who have recently had close contact with a person with Covid-19 should stay home and monitor their health.
