Health and Safety

When you step into Sunny Hill Early Learning Center, you will see that we take pride in providing children with a learning environment that’s encouraging, welcoming, and above all, safe. We work hard to protect every child, each day, through everything from equipment checks and head counts to alarms and cameras. Entrance requirements such as ID checks and secure entry doors ensure only authorized individuals enter our schools.

Keeping a Watchful Eye: Through the use of cameras and door alarms, we monitor the entire school. Our multi-room a real-time view into classrooms, and other school areas, via a closed-circuit feed. We take pride in our transparency and open-door policy, and we believe these monitoring solutions highlight that commitment.

From the Start: Primary caregivers for infants, toddlers, and 2-year-olds allow for consistent caregiving and a stronger relationship between teachers and children. Parents collaborate with staff on a defined care plan (reviewed and updated once a month in infants, and twice a year 18 months- 2 years old). Infant diaper changes follow a strict schedule.

Sleeping Safely: We follow a “Lights On” policy at all times. During naptime lights will be off however, teachers maintain visual contact and active listening. Cots and cribs feature age-appropriate bedding. All babies (up to age 2) are placed on their backs to sleep; all napping children are checked at regular intervals.

Ready to Protect: We ensure that children are supervised closely and accounted for at all times through strict ratio guidelines and regular safety training for teachers. We prepare for emergency scenarios, via additional safety training. Classrooms are all stocked with supplies for evacuation and emergency situations. All of our teachers and staff are CPR and first aid certified and training is up to state standards.

Health & Cleanliness: Regular hand washing curbs the spread of germs. Children are regularly monitored for symptoms of illness. Parents are notified immediately when their child does not feel well to help prevent spread of illness. Classrooms are cleaned and disinfected regularly, with child-safe products.

DSD & Nu-Quat: This eco-friendly machine cleans and sanitizes nearly everything your child touches, using no harsh liquids or chemicals, and eliminating 99% of common bacteria and viruses.

Healthy Diets, Growing Children: In our kitchen, all of our food items are prepared from our in-house chef’s menu. We also ensure that all food is cut and sized appropriately per the age group’s needs. Staff members look over children at meal and snack times, as they enjoy a menu put together by our chef. Safe and healthy food choices, and well-balanced diets, are an essential part of Sunny Hill Early Learning Center.
