The happiness and safety of our babies and toddlers has always been our top priority. We are providing adventures for the youngest and snuggliest population on the planet, who need our most dedicated care from the point of entering the departure lounge to disembarking the plane. 

  

Given the changing COVID dynamics, our on-board safety procedures have changed a bit in order to maintain the highest safety standards! These past few years we've taken a fine-tooth comb to our practices and processes, revisiting every step to ensure that our sessions are as safe as can be. This has included different class layouts, prescribed sitting arrangements, recalibrated adventures, new props, special training for our flight crew, and a whoooole lot of sanitizer! 

  

For the more technical minded, what all of this means is that Lullaland sessions will run in accordance with government guidelines and the Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) Practice Guidance in regard to COVID-19. 

  

We have made changes to our classes based on the most recent Public Health announcement and we will continue to monitoring the rules and regulations as it pertains to COVID. It’s important to note that as rules or new recommendations are announced from MB Public Health or the City of Winnipeg, Lullaland may change any of the below polices at any given time. 

  

Please see the Lullaland COVID Safety Plan below for a look at what is being implemented in your sessions.

Lullaland COVID Safety Plan
Updated February 2022

Before coming to Lullaland

By attending a Lullaland class you are declaring that to the best of your knowledge you and your child can answer ‘no’ to all of the screening questions below: 

  1. Are you or your little one experiencing symptoms suggestive of COVID-19? 

  1. Have you or your little one been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19? 

  1. Are you or your little one awaiting a COVID-19 test result? 

  

If the answer to any of these questions is ‘yes’ for either your or your child, it will not be safe for you to attend Lullaland so you must remain at home in line with government guidelines. By entering Lullaland you are declaring ‘no’ to these questions.   

 

If you have travelled internationally, you must follow Federal testing and isolation/self-isolation (quarantine) requirements. 

  

  

Sick Policy and Isolation Requirements 

If you or your little one is unwell you should not attend class. Individuals should self-isolate if they:  

  

  • You or your little one has tested positive for COVID-19 from a test taken at a lab or at a provincial testing site (a PCR test or a rapid molecular test), or from a rapid antigen test (RAT). 

  • You or your little one has COVID-19 symptoms, regardless of whether you've been exposed through travel or contact with a case. If you do not go for testing, you should assume you have COVID-19 and follow the guidance for cases.   

  

For a detailed account of the isolation requirements, please see the Manitoba Public Health guidance here.  

  

An up–to-date list of symptoms can be found at https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/about/index.html 

  

Anyone who is unsure whether they or their child should be tested and self-isolate, should be directed to the COVID-19 Screening Tool at https://sharedhealthmb.ca/covid19/screening-tool/ or Screening Checklist found here: https://www.gov.mb.ca/asset_library/en/coronavirus/covid19_screening_checklist.pdf   

 
  

Vaccinations 

Grown-ups will be required to show proof of vaccination to participate in Lullaland class. We ask that grown-ups are ready to show their vaccination QR code or vaccination card as soon as they arrive at the venue. It's important to mention that Lullaland staff are required by the government to refuse entry if you are unable to show proof. Please note Lullaland staff are vaccinated. 

 

Beginning April 2022, we will no longer require proof of vaccination unless the venue we are operating in, requires it. At this time, Rady JCC will be checking proof of vaccination upon entry so if you are planning to register at this location, you must be double-vaccinated.   

  

  

Arriving at your class 

We’ve put in place new procedures for grown ups to follow when arriving and leaving Lullaland. We will only open our class doors 5-10 minutes before each class to allow for extra time for disinfecting. When the doors do open, feel free to come in to get settled in a spot with your baby. 

  

  

Cleaning hands 

Prior to entering the room participants will be encouraged to either wash their hands or use the hand sanitizer provided at the entry station.  

  

 

Removing Footwear 

All grown-ups will be required to remove footwear on arrival. Please wear or bring socks to wear during class. Toddlers will be required to wear indoor shoes during their adventure.   

  

  

Guests 

As of February 15th, we will be able to accommodate guests in class if authorized by Lullaland prior to the class.  Guests can include another parent, caregiver, or other child. In the event another child is in attendance, please be aware that no additional props will be allocated to that child. Please be aware that neither child can be left unattended in the class in any event.  

 

To request a guest, please email contact@lullalandsensory.ca prior to your class. We reserve the right to decline a guest in order to manage the class capacity.  

 

Class Layouts 

Grown-ups will be expected to bring their own yoga mat to class. This will be you and your little ones home base for Lullaland your adventure. Our team will show you where to place your mat you spaced apart from other participants in class. 
 

  

Maintaining Social Distances 

We respectfully ask that grown-ups are mindful of maintaining social distancing for themselves and their baby at all times.  

  

We do appreciate that this is a harder task with toddlers. ELCC guidelines state that when social distancing in a group is challenging due to children’s ages, it's reasonable for individuals to be closer to one another when necessary. Although we will still endeavor to keep distance between participants, before registering, grown ups need to be aware that strong-minded and energetic toddlers will make this difficult, and accept that by joining the class that some contact with other toddlers may occur.  

  

Beginning in April 2022, grown ups will be stationed 1 meter apart.  

  

  

Face Masks  

Grown-ups will be required to wear a face mask at all times while at Lullaland during our Winter Term (February-March 2022). Lullaland staff will also be wearing a mask at all times.  

 

Beginning in April 2022, face masks will be optional depending on the venue; Rady JCC will be continuing the requirement to wear masks so this will be mandatory for participants and staff at Rady JCC. Masks will be optional at all other venues however we encourages participants to wear face masks in communal areas.

  

  

Cleaning  

To minimize the risk of cross-contamination, frequent and thorough cleaning and disinfection will continue to take place. This will include not only class equipment and props, but also contact surface areas such as doors, door handles, ledges, etc. If grown ups would like to sanitize their own mat on arrival, we will have anti-bacterial spray and paper towel available. 

  

If your baby happens to: 

  1. Spit up - don’t worry! We know this often happens often. Just let a Lullaland leader know and we can help to clean and sanitize your props and/or surrounding area. 

  1. Needs a diaper change - Please bring your own change mat/diapers as we do not provide a communal change area. 

  
 

Adventures 

a) Props 

Please note that any props distributed are for your and your baby’s personal use for the session. They are fully sanitized prior to your class.  

  

b) Activities – effective April 2022 only: 

  • Communal props – we will be using communal props (such as parachutes, LED string lights, inflatables, ball pits and pop up tents) which will require participants being closer together at times 

  • Prop bags – we will no longer be using individual prop bags as props will be distributed by staff at the start of each activity 

  • Singing - we ask that all singing is done gently and directed towards your own little one 

  

Leaving Lullaland  

In order to maximize proximity of participants between classes and to allow for extra time to sanitize, we respectfully request that grownups leave promptly after their session. We have adjusted class schedules to allow for this, but it will only be effective if participants are prompt at exiting. 

  

But we know in some cases babies need a feed - and they aren’t ones to be patient especially when hungry(!) If your little one urgently needs a feed at the end of class, do not worry. Stay where you are, do what you have to do and leave when your little one is feeling content enough to move on. 

  

  

Make-up Classes 

In the event you cannot attend a class, we will do our best to offer you a place in another class if we have prior notice. Unfortunately, makeup classes may be difficult to arrange since our classes tend to be fully booked. With that said, we will do everything we can to accommodate you in another class at some point during the term. We can’t make guarantees, but we will try our best! 

  

If you know you cannot make a class, we ask that you give as much notice as possible, whenever possible. When participants across all locations and classes work collectively to give notice for missed classes, there is a greater chance that make-up classes can be arranged. Remember we do have our ‘Gift a Class’ policy, where you can let a friend and baby experience Lullaland on your behalf - visit our T&C’s for more info on that.  

  

If your class time has passed and you were unable to give advance notice of your absence, we will not be able to offer a make-up class as your spot was already held. 

  

  

Contingency Planning 

As parents ourselves, we’ve become used to having backup plans for our backup plans if the unexpected happens. In the unfortunate event that the government directs us to stop classes due to a change and increase in COVID-19 cases, the remaining sessions for that term will be cancelled. We may offer the option for you to resume classes online. However, if you prefer, we will also offer a refund the remaining classes that we were forced to cancel. 

  

In the event that Lullaland staff are unable to run a class due to sickness or family sickness/emergency, Lullaland will cancel the class and let you know via email. If your session is cancelled, you will be offered an alternative session at a later date, potentially after the end of the term. 

  

  

Respecting our staff 

Our staff will be working their hearts out to ensure everyone has a wonderful experience. Ultimately this situation has shown us that our safety and wellbeing can only be assured if we all show consideration and care for another. We ask all our lovely participants to be our partners in this endeavor, so that we can all enjoy being with our young ones and with one another safely. 

  

  

  

We’re now cleared for take-off! 

We couldn’t be more excited to welcome you and your little one aboard!  If you have any questions regarding the above please don’t hesitate to contact us or feel free to visit our FAQ’s page where we address COVID-related questions, what to bring to Lullaland, and much more!
