HEALTH AND SAFETY PRACTICES
Establishing a safe, healthy environment provides the basis for which all childcare situations should meet prior to children being introduced to the environment. Some of the precautions we take are: Using sanitary practices in diapering and bathroom visits; hand washing; toy sanitation; daily cleaning of all floors and mopping with disinfectant; locks on medicines and hazardous materials; doors and locks to close off dangerous areas; separation of individual bedding and linens; washing of linens weekly, baby items daily; items not intended for children’s play kept up; fenced outside play area.
Hand washing is our number one safety practice. Hand washing is the best method of avoiding the spread of germs. The children are taught to wash their hands using running warm water, soap and vigorous scrubbing. A hand-washing schedule is posted at every sink. Children must wash their hands as soon as they arrive daily. Parents should help their child accomplish this task. This is one of the ways parents will participate in our daily routines. Even the youngest children must have their hands washed as soon as they enter. This is a practice we encourage you to also teach at home so that it will reinforce what we are teaching.
Breakfast, lunch and an evening snack are served daily. We strictly follow the guidelines set forth by the USDA Food Program and serve well-balanced, nutritious meals in accordance. We eat with the children so you can be assured we serve hot, delicious meals with many special treats.
Infants are fed according to parent’s instructions.
