Health and Wellness
When the Covid-19 crisis began, we immediately established new protocol to ensure that every single person that entered our schools was unquestionably as safe as possible. Even as local agencies have lifted some of the required practices, we’ve kept them in place to continue to provide the absolute safest environment for children that can be achieved. The video below outlines the many steps we’ve taken to meet this critical goal.
Meals and Snacks
Educational Playcare provides a nutritious snack each morning and afternoon and a nutritious lunch each mid-day. We also will provide a breakfast for early arrivers. Our menu includes fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables and high quality protein sources. We also offer a vegetarian option on days when meat is served.

The Amazing ZONO Machine!
All of our schools employ a revolutionary process for sanitizing that helps us in the never-ending fight to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses. The ZONO system is radically different from other sanitizing solutions. It uses ozone and a small amount of water to kill 99.9% of bacteria and 99.99% of viruses on materials placed inside its refrigerator-sized cabinet. Expensive? Yes, but there is no price we wouldn’t pay to ensure the health of every child in our schools.

All of our centers are certified as Eco-Healthy Childcare Programs by the Children’s Environmental Health Network (C.E.H.N.). In order to be endorsed, our centers must meet 30 best practices for environmental health. These include recycling, maintaining adequate air quality, using safe cleaning products, using only non-toxic toys and art supplies, maintaining exceptional cleaning practices, and a whole lot more.

Our centers are thoroughly cleaned throughout each day and professionally cleaned during evenings and weekends. All of our infant and toddler classrooms maintain a shoeless policy in order to maintain clean floors for our crawling children. We only use Enviro-Solutions cleaning products which are a much safer alternative to traditional cleaning products for many reasons.
