NewTechKids Health And Safety Precautions

NewTechKids and the Amsterdam Public Library adhere to the COVID-19 protocols issued by the Dutch government.

  • Our programs are limited to a maximum of 15 children in OBA Junior Lab which is large and well-ventilated.
  • NewTechKids has used AI-based software to design floor plans for the room which determine the spacing of tables and chairs, the location of teacher, etc. Tables and chairs are placed apart to encourage social distancing amongst the children.
  • NewTechKids’ teacher checks the temperature of all children with a no-contact thermometer when they arrive for each class. Kids with temperatures above 38 degrees celsius are asked to return home.
  • Kids are required to wash their hands when they arrive and there are multiple hand washing breaks during every class.
  • Hand sanitizer is readily available.
  • Children are encouraged to wear masks but this is optional.
  • Our teachers stand at a distance from kids during class discussions and while explaining computer science and programming theory. They will use a microphone so everyone can hear clearly.
  • Our teachers wear masks while helping kids at their work stations.
