Restrictions Eased for Kindergartens in Taipei with 90% Capacity 北市幼兒園.安親班解封 最多可收9成

Kindergartens will raise their capacity from August 10th as the epidemic is gradually under control. Meanwhile, social distancing must be maintained indoors with partitions in place during meals.  


The children are reluctant to leave their parents, with some crying as they enter the classroom. Taipei eased restrictions on kindergartens and after-school programs on Aug. 10 under the Level 2 alert.


Parent1:” The school has continuously disinfected and adjusted the number of people, so it should be fine. The children all wear masks during naptime.”


Parent2:” It's going pretty well. I was afraid that he wouldn't want to return after spending so much time away and it would be more inconvenient because he would be missing home life and not want to come here.”


Kindergartens, who are currently running at a halved capacity, will return to 90 percent from August 10th. It is a huge relief for parents who were eager to send their children back to school. The new policy will be implemented under hygiene measures. And Taipei City government underlines that each student must have a personal space of at least 2.25 square meters in indoor environments and there must be partitions in place during meals.


Wu Cheng-fen, Principal, Care Boll Kindergarten:”We're currently at about 80 percent capacity, about 80 to 90 percent. It was announced today that the requirement is 2.25 square meters of space per student, but we already ratified a standard of 2.5 square meters per person. We've always had more stringent standards.”


Lin Yu-jui, Principal, Huai Chung Kindergarten:”If there is still space after we fulfill the demand from the five categories, then we will open it up to other students.”


Some kindergartens said they will continue to prioritize the minor of parents working in five categories, including police officers, firefighters, and medical personnel. Others said some parents decided not to bring back their children due to the epidemic situation, so there aren't any issues with capacity. 


As for school personnel, the majority of them have already received their first vaccine dose. They hope to get the second as quickly as possible to strengthen safety across the board.

 

 

 


小朋友捨不得和家長分開、在進教室前哭了起來。台北市的幼兒園和安親班,從10號開始、第二階段解封。


學生家長1:「學校都有一直在更新一些消毒或是人數的一些狀況,所以其實應該是還好。然後,小朋友他們午睡也都有戴口罩。」


學生家長2:「是還好,只是想說怕他脫離學校太久,然後怕之後再回來會比較麻煩一點。因為他可能就是會比較想念家裡的生活,然後變成不喜歡來。」


幼兒園在7月27號到8月9號之間,人數降載為50%,現在提高到90%,讓不少家長期待把小朋友送回來上課。但防疫規範還是要作好,比方師生在入園或是入班之前,一樣要量測體溫、酒精消毒並全程配戴口罩。室內環境,必須要符合每位學生至少有2.25平方公尺的活動面積,至於用餐的隔板也不能少。


北市私立卡兒堡幼兒園園長吳正芬:「我們現在目前大概(收托)80%到90%左右,今天公告是2.25坪,但是我們本來核定的標準全員收托的部分,每一個人就已經是2.5坪了,所以我們一直以來都是高過這個標準。


台北市懷中非營利幼兒園園長林育瑞:「這五個(類型)裡面,在人數沒有額滿的時候,我們還是會請他(其他學生)做進來的部分。」


人數開放到九成,有園所表示還是以警消醫護等五大類型家庭的小孩為優先,也有園所指出,有家長考量疫情沒有把小孩送回來,所以收托狀況還OK、不需要特別安排或使用抽籤等方式,讓小朋友來上課。


至於教保人員和老師們,目前大多已經施打第一劑疫苗,業者也期待能盡快施打第二劑,強化師生們的安全保障。
