Health and Safety
At Discovery Point, the safety and well-being of our children and our staff is our top priority. We take the quality and cleanliness of our facilities very seriously. Our stringent safety policies and health guidelines reflect that commitment. Our centers are cleaned and sanitized throughout each day and proper hand-washing techniques are always a part of our daily routines.
Each Discovery Point center is following their local health and safety guidelines as we all navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
At Discovery Point Old Peachtree, We have installed APCO-X Fresh-Zaire UV air purification systems in all the rooms. APCO-X combines UV-C lights and EverCarbon TM cells to safely reduce biological contaminants such as mold, bacteria, and viruses. This system runs 24/7, continuously purifying the air throughout the center.
We are also running Ozone machines nightly in all of the classrooms as well as the cafe and lobby. We have 4 Ozone machines purchased to run and rotate nightly. These machines go the extra mile in air purification and sanitation.
These machines have proven efficient in the destruction of viruses, bacteria and mold in the air and on surfaces, including
-Rhinovirus (Common Cold)
-Upper Respiratory Virus (e.g. RSV)
-Hand Foot and Mouth
*Based on FDA and CEC Approved Ozone Technology
We will continue to monitor the updates surrounding COVID-19 and plan accordingly. In the meantime, you can read up on the frequently asked questions regarding COVID-19 and children from the CDC’s website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html#COVID-19-and-Children
Child Care Health & Nutrition
Children benefit from our nutritious menu and become educated about what’s included in a healthy meal. Discovery Point’s menus are posted daily to let families know what to expect from our child care health and nutrition program.
A healthy child is better able to learn and grow, both academically and socially. Mealtime is also an excellent opportunity for children to work on their social skills while providing them with happy and healthy fuel! We therefore believe it is such an important part of our curriculum to lead by example and reinforce nutritional education.
- We strictly enforce health and hygiene standards
- Our commercial kitchens prepare USDA-approved, child-friendly menus
- We accommodate dietary needs regarding allergies
- Our equipment and toys are systematically sanitized
- We communicate to parents when their children are sick
We take the quality and cleanliness of our facilities very seriously. Our rigid safety policies and health guidelines reflect that commitment. In addition, we accommodate any allergies or dietary restrictions for the absolute finest in child care health and nutrition.
Fueling Healthy Development at Our Child Care Centers
Child care health and nutrition go hand-in-hand with learning and growth. Your child’s health is of the utmost importance to us. It’s a commitment we share at every local Discovery Point Child Development Center. We will also communicate openly with you should your child become sick or injured for any reason. We believe nutrition is a foundational building block for healthy living and learning, so we work to provide each child with nourishing, USDA-approved meals.
