The Regular Use
Of Masks And Gloves
To Protect You

Your child’s teacher wears a mask along with gloves during key tasks like handling food and cleaning to put a stop to cross-contamination. They also don’t enter public establishments for lunch breaks, keeping your child’s spaces isolated and safe.

Germs Have No Home
On Your Child’s Toys

Each classroom’s used toys get sanitized twice daily, and no toys from home enter the building, limiting any risk of cross-contamination while your child enjoys the fun of their favorite toys safely.

Deep Cleaning Keeps
Spaces Risk-Free

An on-site cleaning staff continuously disinfects your child’s classrooms and bathrooms nightly. During the day, high-traffic spots like doorknobs get treated with a bleach/water solution, along with playground equipment, tables, and chairs.

Following Social Distancing
Strategy To Safeguard Health

Following Social
Distancing Strategy
To Safeguard Health

Your child sits and plays on a dedicated foam mat positioned 6 ft apart from others’. Floor markers indicate 6 ft distances as a reminder and guide for practicing social distancing, lowering contagious contact risk.

Increased Attention To Hand
Hygiene Stops The Spread

Increased Attention
To Hand Hygiene
Stops The Spread

Frequent hand-washing throughout the day for both your child and staff kills surface germs and effectively lowers the risk of cross-contamination, keeping your child safe and healthy.

Limited Visitors Means
Limited Exposure

No parents or visitors may enter the building unless it’s an emergency, so your child’s space stays isolated from the risk of possible exposure.
