All programs at Cook’s School Day Care Inc (home- and centre-based locations) remain closed.

It is unclear when Cook’s will resume normal operations.

We continue to closely monitor all recommendations made by the federal and provincial governments, our local Health Unit, the County of Northumberland and the Ministry of Education. Cook’s will work with all levels of government to contain the spread of COVID-19 and respond to any direction given from authorities.

Health authorities stress the critical importance of taking the following precautions:

  • wash hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • sneeze and cough into your sleeve
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • avoid contact with people who are sick
  • stay home if you are sick
