2021-2022 School Year Update: Next Door is now operating with 100% in-person learning for our center-based and home-based programs. We continue to follow national, state and local safety guidelines to keep everyone as safe as possible and prevent the spread of Covid-19. In our buildings, we require all Next Door employees, children ages three and up, parents/caregivers and visitors to wear masks. Our Parent Educators visiting families at home are also required to wear masks.

We are also encouraging social distancing as much as possible and reducing interactions among our classrooms. If we receive a report of a student or staff member testing positive for Covid-19, we will temporarily transition classrooms or home visitations to virtual learning and work with City of Milwaukee Health Department to determine proper quarantine measures. As of August 27, 2021, 72% of Next Door staff have received Covid-19 vaccinations.
