It's awesome. Lukas didn't seem particularly unhappy while he was stuck at home with his boring moms but he is now deliriously happy being able to go to Tot Lot again. He loves it there so much that I was really hoping he'd at least get a few more weeks with them and a real goodbye before heading to kindergarten (or not).
As far as the safety factor, it feels safe to us. Cases are low right now in Cambridge and people are still cautious. If the Y, taking care of the kids of essential workers, was able to do so in NYC without any outbreaks, we can for sure do it. We have many of the same precautions as the Y used
. The main worry is the teachers infecting each other, and they take masks & distancing seriously.
