The municipal nursery schools resume their face-to-face activity with the return to the classrooms of 88 minors
The three municipal nursery schools in Benidorm and the Early Childhood Service (SAPI) have resumed their face-to-face activity today after being closed for more than three months as a result of the Covid-19 health crisis. The Councilor for Education, Maite Moreno, reported that "on this first day 88 children from 0 to 3 years old returned to the classrooms, so there is still capacity to accommodate more students despite the reduction in the ratio per classroom set by the regulations of the Regional Government ”.
Specifically, the ratio is 75%, so the maximum number of students in 0-year-old nursery schools is 6 children; 9, in those of P1; and 15 boys and girls in 2-year-olds.
Moreno stressed that "the reopening of the three municipal schools and the SAPI has been carried out with complete normality and heeded the instructions of the health authorities and the Generalitat Valenciana." Thus, "all the nursery schools in the municipal network have prepared, with the advice of the City's Occupational Risk Prevention technician, a Contingency Plan to adapt the facilities and their operation to the instructions of the Ministry, and thus guarantee compliance of all security and hygiene measures ”.
Among these measures and to guarantee that the access to the centers is done in a staggered way, "the time of entry and exit has been made more flexible", so that the students will be able to access from 08:00 to 10:00 and leave the facilities from 13:00 to 15.00 hours ”.
