Health & Safety

Since opening the first Primrose school in 1982, the health and safety of children and staff has always been the priority. We hold each Primrose school to high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.


Health & Safety Practices

Schools follow our stringent health and safety protocols, including:

  • Requiring any children or staff with respiratory illness symptoms or fever to return home and stay home until fever free for at least 24 hours
  • Frequent disinfecting and sanitizing of high-touch toys and surfaces
  • Frequent handwashing by children and staff, which is embedded in our curriculum and daily staff protocols
  • Training teachers on common signs of illness in children, and placing signage in every classroom to keep signs of illness top of mind
  • Daily laundering of crib sheets for infants; for older children, individual cots and blankets are provided for each child and laundered weekly
  • Continuous health & safety training for Franchise Owners and staff, including first aid and CPR certification
  • Maintaining an up-to-date and customized Safe School Plan posted in all classrooms for easy teacher access
  • In most states, ensuring lower teacher-student classroom ratios than required by the state
