Pinellas County children's playhouse reopens with restrictions

Businesses across the state are again adapting as new rules emerge during Full Phase 1 of reopening Florida amid the pandemic.

Palm Harbor's Little Explorers is no different. They shut their doors to the public and went virtual back in March.

The company focuses on educational playdates for kids under six.

When the pandemic hit, the company had to pivot. Moving sales on-line, along with classes and making sure kids were still getting some sense of routine.

Now, they're allowing for limited, private playdates.

"Meaning the space will only take 10 people," says owner Caroline Sakla. "It's an hour and a half. We close for an entire hour between the play dates to wipe down every single surface that could be touched."

Sakla says they thoroughly sanitize between visits, and teachers are also staying well over six-feet apart during the individualized play dates.
