We are closely following guidance from state and local officials and health authorities as we take extreme care to maintain our safe, healthy school environment. Procedures are subject to change as state regulations, federal guidance, and best practices continue to evolve in response to new developments in the pandemic. Some locations may have different protocols as a result. Please check with your local school to confirm guidelines.
Employee Vaccination & Testing: Providing the best possible care now includes taking the necessary step of requiring our employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Employees who are not fully vaccinated will undergo weekly testing.
Regular handwashing, for children and staff, prevents the spread of germs in our school community. We keep an eye out for any signs of illness and immediately notify parents when their child is unwell, to make sure we stop any illness from spreading. Child-safe products are used on a regular schedule to clean and disinfect our classrooms.
To further enhance our safety protocols, each center has a dedicated Safety Captain, who ensures a secure environment for children, family members, and our staff. This includes regular training for teachers and U-GRO employees in case of an emergency (including fire drills, evacuations, and more). We also follow state standards for CPR and first aid training. Strict ratio guidelines are followed to maintain constant supervision of every child in our care.
During naps, the lights are never turned off. To ensure nap time safety, children in cribs are always under visual contact and listened to. Children sleep on their backs with age-appropriate bedding.
Outdoor and indoor equipment is regularly inspected for safety. Toys are regularly checked for broken or loose parts, monitored for choking hazards, and disinfected on a regular schedule. Secure fencing and a smart design in our play areas help to keep your child safe and prevent injury.
