We take the well-being of your child very seriously and work hard to provide an environment that is as healthy as possible. We are committed to keeping our school and the children in it as clean as possible, in order to help minimize and/or prevent the spread of germs.

Hand Washing

Hand washing is the single most effective practice in preventing the spread of germs. We wash our hands many times throughout the day, as well as the children’s hands before and/or after engaging in a thorough list of activities.

Teachers and Staff wash their hands:

  • Before beginning work
  • Immediately before handling food or feeding children
  • After using the toilet, helping a child use the toilet, or after changing soiled clothing or diapers
  • After coming into contact with any bodily fluid, such as a wet or soiled diaper, runny nose, spit or vomit
  • Whenever hands are visibly dirty
  • After cleaning a child, the classroom, toys, or bathroom
  • Before giving medication or applying ointment
  • After work

Children wash their hands:

  • Immediately before and after eating
  • After using the toilet or having soiled clothing or diaper changed
  • Before and after using water tables
  • After using play-dough or other substances
  • After playing on the playground
  • Whenever hands are visibly dirty
  • Before going home

Cleaning and Disinfecting

Our school is kept clean and disinfected at all times. We thoroughly clean surfaces that children come in close contact with, using soap and water, Lysol, etc. The high chairs are cleaned between each use, and the diaper changing tables are cleaned and disinfected between each diaper change. Toys are cleaned and disinfected daily, and water-play tables are cleaned and disinfected before being filled with water and are carefully supervised when in use.
