Health & Safety Practices in Place

  • Temperature of each child and staff member will be taken and recorded in a daily log. Children/staff will be monitored throughout the day for signs/symptoms.
  • Parents/responsible party must wear a mask during drop off and pick up and may not enter the school. The child(ren) will be collected from the common area outside of our Suite 101 door and will be escorted to the classroom by staff member.
  • Teachers are required to wear masks all day.
  • Teachers will aid children in washing their hands upon entry and before exiting the classroom, as well as after every meal, activity, bathroom break, etc.
  • Our teachers disinfect the classroom including toys throughout the day. Only objects that can be sanitized properly will be out for play. There will be a limited number of toys out at one time (rotated out periodically) to ensure all toys are disinfected after each use.
  • Victory Electrostatic Sprayer is used to disinfect classroom toys and upholstery as well as playground equipment.
  • 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
  • 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
  • Ensuring appropriate teacher-student classroom ratios
  • Continuous health & safety training for our staff, including first aid and CPR certification
