COVID-19 Update: What We've Learned

As we see out the last days of summer, I wanted to take the opportunity to update everyone on what we know about COVID-19 and young children and what life at Kids Konnect looks like moving forwards. 

Reality Check: Coronavirus and Preschool-Aged Children

Last week, the LA Times reported that despite being “mask licking germ bombs”, few preschoolers catch the coronavirus. The article goes on to discuss how prevalent other illnesses can be in preschools, with a healthy preschooler bringing home 12 - 18 upper respiratory infections, at least six to eight colds, two cases of croup, and very often flu—all in a typical year. However when it comes to COVID-19, only 450 students have tested positive across the 33,773 open preschools. Even when including staff and parents, the overwhelming majority of preschools in California have reported zero cases of COVID-19.

Why Do I Need a Safe Solution to Pandemic Pods?

As we enter the Fall season, there is a surge of families rising up to provide education for their children amidst a period of K12 school closures due to the pandemic. At Kids Konnect, we join Gov. Newsom in applauding parents’ resourcefulness, but we must draw on our experience to warn against taking rash action when we are in crisis mode.

COVID-19 Safety at Kids Konnect

As our families will be aware, there are a number of additional COVID-19 safety procedures in effect at all Kids Konnect schools for the safety of our children, staff and their carers.
