Choosing a Child Care Center Focused On Cleanliness
When parents choose a child care center, they look at many different factors in order to make the best decision. It is very important to ensure that your child is receiving the best care and attention, but what about the facility itself? Be sure that the facility you choose has routines and procedures to insure a healthy environment. Here is why choosing a center focused on cleanliness is beneficial.
Any environment with children comes with the high possibility of sniffles and sneezes. Because of this, we follow strict procedures for cleaning surfaces and toys with a sanitizing bleach solution throughout the day. We adhere to stringent guidelines for diaper changing and potty training. We have daily routines for washing sheets and disinfecting cribs and mats. By consistently cleaning the facility and working to ensure items are free from any germs or bacteria, we can decrease the potential for illnesses.
We recognize that there are many children who have allergies and may not react well with dust, dander, and other bacteria in the facility. Because of this concern, we take every precaution to help keep a clean and tidy facility including have separate storage spaces for personal items and careful preparation and service of food. Your child’s health is our top priority.
Instill Importance of Healthy Habits
We are not only committed to keeping our facility clean, but we also enjoy showing your child how important it is to wash their hands and keep their areas clean. We wash hands upon entering and exiting the class, before & after meals and snacks, and before & after tactile activities like the sand table, play dough, building blocks, or art. Not only does this avoid the spread of germs, but children learn that they can have an active role in staying healthy.
