Hand washing is the single most effective practice in preventing the spread of germs. Teachers are required to wash their own hands, as well as the hands of a child using described procedures, before and/or after engaging in a thorough list of activities.
Cleaning and Disinfecting
We take very seriously the well-being of your child and work hard to provide an environment that is as healthy as possible. The Health and Safety section of our Operations Manual has very specific procedures and requirements concerning cleanliness and preventing the spread of germs.
Andrews Academy staff is directed to thoroughly clean surfaces that children come in close contact with, using soap and water. In addition, some surfaces, including bathroom surfaces, are to be disinfected in a prescribed way. Toys that children put into their mouths are also required to be cleaned and disinfected between uses. Water Play tables must be disinfected before being filled with water and carefully supervised when in use
