NewTechKids Health Precautions

NewTechKids and the Amsterdam Public Library adheres to the COVID-19 social distancing recommendations issued by the Dutch government. NewTechKids is taking additional measures:

  • NewTechKids is requiring all participating children to wear masks during our classes. During our longer bootcamps of 4 hours, we take kids outside for fresh air twice per day.
  • NewTechKids is using AI-based software to design a floor plan for the room which guarantees social distancing: placement of tables and chairs, location of teacher, etc. Places will be clearly spaced and indicated.
  • NewTechKids’ teacher will check the temperature of all children with a no-contact thermometer when they arrive each morning. Kids with temperatures above 38 degrees Celsius will be asked to return home.

Our bootcamps will be limited to a maximum of 16 children in OBA’s Junior Lab, a very large and open room. We will encourage kids to keep their distance.

  • Kids will be required to wash their hands when they arrive and there will be multiple hand washing breaks during every class.
  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available.
  • For our holiday bootcamps, kids are required to bring their lunch daily along with their own cups and utensils.
