As reopen, Widener Child Development Center is following all CDC COVID-19 recommendations to ensure the health and safety of our learning community.

Tadpoles App

The Tadpoles app allows parents and educators to facilitate contactless curbside check-in and log children’s temperature and symptoms in accordance with CDC guidelines.

“The Tadpoles® health screening forms help monitor staff and children for COVID-19 symptoms by allowing families to use the Tadpoles® parents mobile app to answer health screening questions when they drop off their child, staff to log temperature checks and capture health screening responses for children during check-in and for themselves when they clock in for the day using the Tadpoles® app, and administrators to view a child’s health screening data in the daily report view of the administrator dashboard. Additionally, the Tadpoles® two-way communication feature allows parents and educators to message each other in real time making it easy to implement curbside check-in procedures, thereby reducing or eliminating family member entries.”
