Check out what #StayingSafer looks like on a daily basis at our centers. Our children and staff work hard every day to do their part to follow safety protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic.
After many months of serving and supporting our children, seniors and families through remote supports and in-home services, we are pleased to be welcoming children back to our centers in August with a hybrid in-person and online learning model. Our seniors will continue to receive services remotely. The number one priority remains the health and well-being of all our ESSF Community. Comprehensive protocols for the safer reopening of our childcare centers and classrooms were developed, implemented, and continue to be modified as necessary to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Florida Department of Health and Mayor of Miami-Dade County Carlos Gimenez’s published guidelines.
