Child Development Center Will Open to Infants Again Soon

| May 23, 2020

child development centerFRANKLIN, Pa. – Child Development Centers, Inc. (CDC) has set a date to resume care for infants after initially excluding them as a precautionary measure during its soft re-opening process.

Children under the age of 12 months are permitted to return to CDC facilities on Monday, June 1, following further consideration from the non-profit child care and early childhood education agency’s internal Health Services Team.

A total of six CDC sites in Venango and Crawford Counties partially re-opened on Monday, May 11, as a result of loosened COVID-19-related restrictions from Gov. Tom Wolf, but the organization decided to stagger the return of its youngest learners due to their increased risk for acquiring serious illnesses.

Four of the six open locations have infant classrooms with the exception of Hasson Heights in Oil City and the Franklin School-Age site. CDC representatives will begin contacting families who already have infants enrolled next week to gauge interest and discuss details of the return.

Strict protocols to continue mitigation efforts against the spread of COVID-19 will remain in place, such as limiting access to the centers to only essential personnel.

All adults entering a center must wear a mask and pass a screening at the entryway that includes a thermal temperature scan, a series of questions relating to potential exposure to Coronavirus or symptoms of the virus and the use of hand sanitizer (provided by CDC).
