Health & Safety...
To prevent the spread of illness at The Country Playhouse Preschool, we urge parents/guardians to keep sick children at home. If your child is sick when he/she awakens, please do not send him/her to school. We do not have a nurse's office for "sick patients." If your child becomes ill, you will be asked to arrange for immediate pick-up. We will call the people on your emergency list if you are unavailable.
Where Young Minds Grow...
We take every precaution to ensure your child’s safety. First Aid provisions are available should your child become ill or suffer a minor injury. Our staff members are trained to administer CPR and first aid, and will contact emergency personnel as needed. Parents/guardians will be notified if a significant injury or accident occurs. Whether an injury report will be filed depends on the severity of the injury and is at the discretion of the staff person on duty and the administrator. The Country Playhouse Preschool does not have a nurse on staff.
Our staff cleans and disinfects the play and eating area daily using the three step method; wash, rinse, sanitize. Students and staff are required to wash their hands with soap and water throughout the day, such as before eating, when arriving at school, after playing at recess and after using the bathroom.
If your child is ill and requires medication, we respectfully ask that all medications be administered at home. If your child requires rescue medications, such as an inhaler or Epi-pen, to be on hand at school, the parents will be required to fill out a Medication Authorization form before the child starts school, and before any medications can be brought into the school. The medication must be a prescription, be current, and have the child's name and information on the label.
Should an emergency arise, we follow a comprehensive safety plan. Our staff are trained to carry out evacuations, lockdowns, and other procedures. We hold drills regularly to practice, and update these procedures.
SECURITY & SUPERVISION
Our students’ security is of vital importance. The front door is the only access point to the classroom from the front, and is monitored at all times. Potential clients and visitors are required to make appointments to visit the school, and must sign-in upon arrival. Visitors are not permitted to disturb instruction or daily routine unless they are scheduled to be in attendance. Our goal is to ensure each student is supervised, and safe at all times. Our students will be in direct visual and auditory range of the students at all times.
FOOD AND FEEDING
The Country Playhouse Preschool provides a nutritious morning snack each school day. Parents/guardians are not required to bring snack unless your child has a food allergy and requires special foods. Please note that we are a NUT-FREE facility, therefore any food items brought into school need to be free of nuts of all kind. Food items brought to school for special events and birthdays must be store-bought and in it's original container. Please notify our staff of your child’s food sensitivities or allergies in writing.
