REDDING, Calif. - With parents starting to slowly go back to work, kids will be heading back to daycare.

Kinderland Child Development Center in Redding kept its doors open since the start of the pandemic. Now it's preparing for returning students.

“As each individual family returns to work, they will need care so we're starting to get them back,” said Susan Wilson, the owner, and director of Kinderland Child Development Center and Ark Academy.

Wilson says about 15 to 20 of her students returned in the past two weeks. With more students and teachers expected to comeback, Wilson is focusing on finding new ways to social distance kids. The daycare already has strict health and safety rules in place. Kids and staff are even required to wear masks.

“We started immediately with all sign-ins on our playground and take temperatures at the door,” said Wilson. “[The kids] wash their hands while they sing their ABC’s, we sanitize every two hours, and sanitize the playgrounds twice.”

Families in Shasta County say they're all for the strict cleaning guidelines.

“Personally I think all of this could be a benefit to us during the flu season and not just during coronavirus,” said Marsha Robertson of Anderson.

Wilson tells Action News Now she's currently stopped temporary enrollment for the daycare, so long-term clients are guaranteed their spot back when they return.

Today will be nice but much cooler weather this weekend with a chance of showers and thunderstorms, mostly in the north valley and mountains. We heat up again next week.
