How often are the classrooms/toys cleaned?

Our classrooms are cleaned every night, vacuumed and mopped, and our toys are sprayed with a disinfectant after all the children have left for the day. If a child puts a toy in their mouth, that toy is placed in a bucket to be cleaned. Tables are sprayed down and wiped off after every meal and every time the table is used.

Yes. We provide breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack.

After two years of enrollment, each child will be given two weeks vacation awarded in August equivalent to how many days your child is here on a weekly basis.
