MyVillage, a Colorado-based company started by two moms, is on a mission to create a new gold standard of child care that works for all families, including the many families who are now left scrambling to figure out a new child care solution since COVID-19. MyVillage is a fast-growing network of home-based child care programs across Colorado. And, in response to COVID-19, MyVillage programs are taking on additional safety and cleaning precautions to prevent the spread of germs and be able to continue to provide families with reliable, safe child care among small groups of children.

Home cleaning: 

  • When cleaning your home, wear a pair of gloves to ensure you are not touching any of the surfaces with your hands
  • Clean surfaces with soap and water first, then move to an EPA-registered disinfectant (continue below for a few product recommendations)
  • Practice more routine cleaning on high touch surfaces such as light switches, doorknobs, tables, sinks, faucets, shared toys, and remote controls
  • Once cleaning is finished, remove gloves from inside out and thoroughly wash your hands
  • Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. Given many children don’t yet understand the concept of time, many MyVillage educators teach children specific hand-washing songs that have a singing duration of 20 seconds. Find hand-washing songs for children here

New purchases (includes gently used toys/gear brought into the home from Good Buy Gear):

  • Wear gloves when cleaning any item, especially one you are bringing into your home from elsewhere
  • Feel free to leave your item outside for 24 hours before you begin the cleaning process
  • If you wish to begin using the product immediately, use disinfecting wipes or spray to thoroughly clean the item from top to bottom
  • Once complete, remove the gloves from the inside out and wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
