Primrose School of Old Orchard

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

  • Requiring any children or staff with respiratory illness symptoms or fever to return home and stay home until fever free without medication for at least 24 hours.
  • Daily screening for fever, signs of illness, and exposure to Covid-19 as a condition to entry for children.
  • Parents drop children off and pick them up via contactless app check-in/out; children are escorted to and from their classrooms by staff.
  • Student / teacher groups remain static throughout the day to the maximum extent possible.
  • Frequent disinfecting and sanitizing of high-touch surfaces, toys, equipment, etc.
  • Frequent handwashing by children and staff, which is embedded in our curriculum and daily staff protocols daily.
  • Training teachers on common signs of illness in children, and placing signage in every classroom as a reminder to teachers. All children who develop signs of illness are immediately removed from the classroom.
  • Staff and parents are reminded frequently in writing about our shared responsibility to engage in social distancing and to avoid high-risk environments and activities.
  • Daily laundering of crib sheets for infants; for older children, individual cots and blankets are provided for each child and laundered weekly.
