As all of us face the stress of the COVID19 outbreak and the new “stay at home” order for all non-essential workers and their families, I am doing my best to make sure we continue to have quality child care available for the families that need it. Our goal is to be here for the children and families as long as we can all stay healthy and are not shut down by a higher authority. Please help us all to stay healthy by keeping your child home if they show signs of any illness or run even a slight fever. Also, please reinforce frequent proper handwashing at home as well as covering when children cough or sneeze.  If you, a parent, are ill or have a known exposure to someone with a positive COVID19 test PLEASE DO NOT come to HAFH for any reason. We at HAFH vow to continue to do everything in our power to keep our environment clean and sanitary.

Under St Louis County Department of Health’s “Stay at Home Order” we will not be allowed to have more than 12 children in care each day. The order also restricts our services to “providing services to people who are necessary employees of essential Businesses.” Please refer to the link below to read the order in its entirety.

Please contact me ASAP either by email, phone or text with your needs for care during this time. Under the current order, we will be allowed to resume normal operations on April 23, 2020. For those families that will be keeping their children home during this time, tuition will be waived starting this Monday 3/23/20 through Wednesday 4/22/2020. At which time if you choose to keep your child’s spot, tuition will need to be paid. (This is of course assuming the stay home order has not been extended beyond 4/22/2020.)

The link below gives some information that may be helpful as well.

As I attempt to do what’s best for all our families and staff, thank you for your support and understanding as we do our best to navigate the uncertainty of the days and weeks to come
