Primrose School of South Elgin

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

  • We require all children and staff with signs of illness or fever to be excluded and stay home until symptom free for at least 24 hours.
  • Health screenings are done at the front door with temperature and well-being checks for all children and staff.
  • Face masks are required for all children age 2+ and all staff, except for when eating and outdoors.
  • We complete frequent disinfecting and sanitizing of high-touch surfaces and toys. Opening and closing hours changed allowing additional time for this process to take place.
  • Frequent hand washing by children and staff, which is embedded in our curriculum and daily staff protocols.
  • Daily laundering of sheets for infants and toddlers; for older children, individual cots, sheets and blankets are provided for each child. Cots and sheets are cleaned daily, blankets are washed weekly.
  • Reduced classroom capacity to foster smaller class sizes, classrooms are not combined at any time of day. Only one class is allowed on the playground at a time and the playground climbers are sanitized between use.
  • A no visitor policy is in place. Parents drop off and pick up outside. Parents interested in learning about our school can arrange a virtual tour or a visit outside.
  • Family style dining is on hold, our teachers serve each child individually.
  • Our campus is professionally cleaned and disinfected nightly by an outside service, ensuring our classrooms are ready for the next day.
  • For the fall back to school semester, we are not offering school-age before/after school services, in order to limit the contact within our school.
