Timberline Learning Center is open! We will continue to update and revise policies and protocols in partnership with Summit County Public Health to ensure that we are appropriately supporting our families and our staff. Please find more information attached below.
Timberline Learning Center has revised its policy in regard to COVID related quarantines as they impact students, families and staff members. Our goal is to continue supporting our staff and families in partnership with Public Health by adopting an updated protocol for adhering to quarantines. We will be using the following guidelines when handling positive COVID diagnoses:
- *If a student tests positive they are excluded for 5 days minimum, beginning the day after symptom onset, and if they are in a preschool classroom, they can return after 5 days and mask for the next five days.
- *If an adult tests positive they are excluded for 5 days minimum, beginning the day after symptom onset, they can return after 5 days and mask for the next five days.
- *If a child/teacher is in the same classroom as a positive they will receive a letter that they have been exposed to the positive person and to monitor for symptoms, they will not be excluded unless they become symptomatic.
- *This guidance includes everyone, vaccinated and unvaccinated.
- *If the positive occurs within the immediate household, then the individual will have to be excluded regardless of symptoms and follow the above guidance based on age/classroom.

We are a school for young children from ages 6 weeks to 6 years. Our approach is Reggio Emilia inspired. The following principles guide our approach and curriculum: The child is an active, strong, competent collaborator in the evolution of their learning. The teacher is a guide, rather than an instructor, who observes, questions, researches, documents, reflects, and interprets. The classroom is a teacher unto itself! The relationships that develop between the children, their families, and the teachers create opportunity for growth, reflection, and support. Long-term projects are at the core of our program, using the children’s interests, and the teacher’s observations, as the guide.
