Primrose School of Natick

The health and safety of our staff and the children entrusted to our care is our top priority. We are proud to maintain high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.

Health & Safety Practices in Place

In consultation with the Board of Health and our school’s Healthcare Consultant, we have met or exceeded the health & safety requirements issued by the Department of Early Education & Care.

    • Our school is equipped with an air purification system from Global Plasma Solutions that fights airborne viruses and provides safer, cleaner air.
    • Only students, faculty and staff are allowed to enter the school during operating hours with the exception of emergency maintenance. Parents complete a digital health screening and daily attestation for their child(ren) each day and scan a QR code for contactless drop off and pick up.
    • All faculty and staff members complete a digital health screening and daily attestation each day. Temperature checks take place upon arrival at school for all faculty and staff.
    • Students, faculty and staff that display symptoms of illness must be cleared by a medical professional and provide a doctor’s note to return to school.
    • Face masks are required by all faculty and staff, as well as all parents/legal guardians while on school property. Face shields, goggles and scrub jackets are also provided to our faculty for use when close contact is required such as diapering and bottle feeding.
    • Face masks are required for students age 2 and up unless they are physically or medically unable to wear a mask. Students have mask breaks throughout the day.
    • Physical distance is promoted at all times. Plexiglass dividers, tables and high chairs have been added into classrooms (varies based on age group) to provide distance at meals.
    • Each classroom has a dedicated playground space and schedule to allow for more time outdoors. The playgrounds are disinfected after each use.
    • Toys and high-touch surfaces are frequently disinfected using an EPA approved disinfectant for COVID-19. Students are also provided their own set of art supplies to minimize sharing.
    • Frequent handwashing by children and staff is embedded in our curriculum and daily protocols.
    • Faculty members are trained on identifying common signs of illness in children, and there is signage in every classroom to keep signs of illness top of mind.
