  • Nursery –
    • No sharing of toys
    • Clean toys immediately after played with. (Do the best you can)
  • CKIA Sunday Morning –
    • Once having the children upstairs having chairs set up 6 feet apart. They would be all individually, no siblings sitting together.  Depending on how many children come back, we may need to set up in the long room above the café’. No snacks, just water available, with the adult helper working the dispenser. No game time unless it is outside and touchless. No sharing of anything.  If someone needs to use the bathroom, adult helper will have to wipe down the area used. IE… Sink, paper towel dispenser, stall handle. (If both stalls used then cleaning the toilet seat and stall?).  (Not sure how else to work that one). We would have them walk in a line 6 feet apart when walking to and from the sanctuary to the CKIA room and vice versa.  (It may take a couple of time and correction to get them used to walking and then walking in a line spaced apart).
