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.
To provide family members with further peace of mind about our safe, secure environment, the entire school is comprehensively monitored with a system of cameras and alarms. The multi-room display in our lobby shows a closed-circuit feed of what’s happening in the school, indoors and out.
Each of our schools has a dedicated Safety Captain, who ensures a secure environment for children, family members, and our staff. Teachers and staff members are regularly trained in safety procedures, such as emergency and evacuation situations (fire, earthquakes, etc.). Strict ratio guidelines have been instituted to maintain constant supervision of every child. Supply items for emergency and evacuations are available to each classroom, and the school is equipped with a defibrillator designed specifically for infants and children. CPR and first aid training based on essential state standards are provided to our staff.
A registered dietitian nutritionist plans all of our Grow Fit menus, with the exception of jarred food or infant cereal. In our kitchen, food is prepared for the children and always cut to appropriate size, depending on the age group eating. Meal and snack times are closely monitored by the staff, because we want your child eating not only healthy, but safely!
Outdoor equipment is regularly inspected for safety. Toys are regularly checked for broken or loose parts, monitored for choking hazards, and disinfected on a regular schedule.
