For example : we disinfect all the toys everyday, we added wall hand sanitizers in the corridor and in the classrooms, we ask the parents to wear a mask and to drop off and to pick up their children at the gate; we check parents and children temperature each morning. We also ask the parents to pay attention to symptoms and not to bring their child if they are sick.
