Important Health and Safety information

Maple Lawn Montessori places the utmost priority on the health and safety of the children in our care, our team members, and the families we serve.

Cleaned – Ongoing throughout the day and evening

To maintain a clean and hygienic environment, our cleaning staff in all schools have increased their frequency in daily cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces, classrooms, furniture, shared areas and items to ensure the safety and well-being of our staff and children. This would avoid contamination from the shared items used in school.

Sanitized – Continuous air scrubbing and purification system*

Above and beyond the health and safety requirements for any child care system. Our centers are installing an enhanced air purification and filtration system with Advanced Oxidation Technology. Similar in design to what is used in healthcare, food processing plants, and other highly sensitive environments, it significantly reduces infectious airborne pathogens by purifying the air. HEPA filters remove airborne particulates.

Transparent – Secure Online Video Monitoring

Stay connected to your child throughout the day from work or home. Our Internet Monitoring System enables you to see your child in real-time over a secure, password-protected internet connection.
 

In addition to the above cleaning and sanity, we are implementing rigorously the below steps to adhere Maple Lawn a SAFE zone

    • Increase focus on good hygiene practices including frequency of handwashing and coughing and sneezing etiquette.

    • Provide hand sanitizer for adults as necessary.

    • Manage classroom group sizes, maintaining teacher-student ratios and avoid combining children from different classrooms.

    • Increase sanitization of frequently touched surfaces and all toys and manipulatives after use.

    • Containment for all crib sheets, cot sheets and blankets, food utensils, and other personal items.

    • Limiting the use of playground equipment to one classroom at a time and disinfecting in between classroom use.

    • Frequently communicating enhanced measures with families and staff.

    • Temporary suspension of field trips and inside group gatherings such as graduations, recitals, and other events.

    • Continuing to implement our handwashing procedures frequently throughout the day using soap and water and scrubbing vigorously for at least 20 seconds. 

    • Reminding teachers and students to avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth. 

    • Strictly enforcing our illness policy for both students and staff. 

    • Separating sick students and teachers from others until they can go home. 

    • Rigorously implementing our three-step cleaning process (wash, rinse, disinfect) for toys and surfaces. 

    • Removing and sanitizing mouthed toys immediately. 

    • Regular laundering of soft items such as bedding, boppy pillows, dress up items, puppets, etc. 

In addition, we ask that families support the healthy environment in our Academy with the following measures:

Please be sure to wash your hands and your child’s hands when you arrive at a room for morning drop-off.
Help protect our most vulnerable children. Only classroom-assigned infants should be present in each infant room.
For families with multiple children, drop off your older children first and pick them up last.
