If an emergency develops such as severe weather, fire, physical damage to the building, or any other situation that poses a threat, you will be notified. The notification process will be given to you upon enrollment.
We suggest comfortable, weather appropriate clothing that children can play in. We do require closed toed shoes at all times to protect tiny feet.
We have a professional cleaning service at the School each night as well as having our closing staff to clean and sanitize their rooms. We utilize a machine known as the ZonoSanitech that sanitizes everything placed inside with a 30 minute cycle. We run toys, books, manipulatives, sleep mats, etc. through this to minimize the opportunity for colds and flus to be spread around the School. Hand sanitizers for parents are placed outside the classroom of every door for convenience. If we find that a particular class has several instances of sickness, we stop the rotation going into the ZonoSanitech machine and just focus on that class until everything that we can fit into it has been run through. In a case like this we also use a sanitizing mister that is released at the close of business in that classroom just to help further protect our students and staff.
