We are closely following guidance from state and local officials and health authorities as we strive to maintain our safe, healthy school environment. Our team continues to be vigilant about consistently implementing our standard rigorous health and safety procedures. Protocols are subject to change as state regulations, federal guidance, and local pandemic conditions evolve. Please check with your local school to confirm whether elevated safeguards such as protective masks, limited building access and temperature checks are required.
Providing the best possible care now includes encouraging our employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Between a system of cameras and door alarms on all exterior doors, our entire school is regularly monitored in comprehensive fashion. Staff and parents can see a multi-room display in the lobby, which shows a closed-circuit feed of what’s happening in classrooms, on the playground, and throughout the school. We pride ourselves on maintain a safe, secure school environment—and providing peace of mind to all our families.
Infants, toddlers, and 2-year-olds receive a primary caregiver that collaborates with families to ensure a close relationship and consistent care.
During naps, the lights are never turned off. To ensure nap time safety, children in cribs are always under visual contact and listened to. Children sleep on their backs with age-appropriate bedding.
All our teachers receive regular training in safety procedures, including emergency and evacuation situations, such as fire or earthquakes. We always follow strict ratio guidelines, ensuring direct supervision of children at all times. Throughout the school, classrooms are equipped with emergency and evacuation supplies. The school also features a defibrillator, designed specifically for infants and children. Each school has a designed Safety Captain, while CPR and first aid training are provided, based on state standards.
Our Grow Fit menu options (aside from jarred food or infant cereal) are planned by a registered dietitian nutritionist, to ensure healthy food options for growing little ones. Food is prepared on-premises, in our kitchen, while we follow strict standards to cut food to appropriate sizes, based on age group. Staff members supervise all meals and snack times, to make sure our children are eating healthy—and safely.
Children and staff wash hands throughout the day, to prevent the spread of germs. Children are closely monitored for signs of illness. The parents of unwell children are notified immediately, to help stop the spread of illness. Classrooms are cleaned and disinfected with child-safe products on a regular schedule.
Regular inspections ensure our outdoor equipment is always safe and play-ready. Toys are checked rigorously for broken or loose parts, monitored for choking hazards, and disinfected according to a regular schedule.
