We would like to inform you that, in addition to the hygienic measures that we have already been adopting on a regular basis in the centre, we have reinforced them by disinfecting our entire centre and developed a preventive hygiene action protocol.
Measures common to ALL persons accessing the school
- Before entering the school, your temperature will be taken with a remote infrared thermometer. If your temperature is over 37.5º C, you will be informed privately and confidentially so that you can explain and/or prove whether the fever is due to a different reason; otherwise you will not be allowed to enter the school.
- To enter and leave the school, it is compulsory to pass through the disinfectant mats, both for people and pushchairs (whenever allowed to enter the centre), as well as to enter wearing a mask.
- Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose and mouth. In case of coughing or sneezing, cover yourself with your flexed elbow.
- Use disposable tissues and throw them away after use.
- Keep a safe distance, following the guidelines set by the centre’s staff.
- Implementation of digital diary

Hygiene and safety measures for families
- All children who walk must have a pair of shoes which they will use exclusively inside the school.

- Only one adult per child will be allowed to be present at pick-up time and it is important to remember to keep a safe distance at all times at the school entrance.
- Each family is responsible for the disinfection of the sheet, bib or bottle given to them by the school.
Hygiene and safety measures for centre staff
- Workers are not allowed to come to the centre with their work uniform on. They must change when arriving at the school, taking into account the time necessary to carry out all cleaning measures (putting on a mask, using hydroalcoholic gel or thorough hand washing if unavailable, etc.).
- The use of gloves shall be limited to food handling, nappy changes and cleaning tasks. Wearing gloves during the whole day is not recommended.
- When the safety distance cannot be respected, the use of a mask or a protective screen is mandatory.
- If any worker presents symptoms such as fever, difficulty in breathing or a feeling of suffocation, he/she must notify the management of the centre as soon as possible and not go to work unless he/she can prove that the symptoms are due to other reasons. The company will activate the protocol issued by the occupational risk prevention service and, if considered necessary, the worker would get tested for Covid at the health centre.
- If a member of the staff has been in contact with an infected person, the company must be informed. The staff should not attend the workplace if being in quarantine period because having had contact with an infected person.
- If any worker or pupil develops symptoms while at the centre, he/she must go to a separate place as soon as possible and put on a surgical mask.
- A list of telephone numbers to call in case of emergency will be established.

- The management of the centre will inform of the guidelines and new measures established for protection and safety.
