Safeguarding Well-Being: Our Sanitation Practices at Children’s Orchard Academy

At Children’s Orchard Academy, the health and safety of our students are at the forefront of everything we do. Our commitment to providing a secure and healthy learning environment is reflected in our comprehensive sanitation practices. In this overview, we highlight key areas we sanitize and explain why these practices are integral to creating a safe and thriving space for our young learners.

  1. Cleaning and Disinfecting Surfaces:
    • Surfaces such as tables, chairs, doorknobs, and learning materials undergo thorough cleaning and disinfecting.
    • Dedicated cleaning staff meticulously wipe down common touchpoints, reducing the risk of germs and illnesses.
    • This proactive measure ensures that our learning environment remains a clean and safe space for both students and educators.
  2. Sanitizing Learning Materials:
    • Recognizing that children are naturally curious and hands-on learners, we prioritize the sanitization of learning materials.
    • Toys, books, and other educational resources go through a rigorous sanitization process.
    • This commitment guarantees that each child can explore and engage with educational materials without compromising their health, fostering a safe and interactive learning environment.
  3. Enhanced Air Quality Measures:
    • Clean air is essential for a healthy learning environment, and we go beyond regular cleaning to ensure optimal air quality.
    • Proper ventilation, air purifiers, and routine maintenance of HVAC systems are integral components of our efforts.
    • These measures contribute to an environment where the air circulating within our facility is fresh and free from contaminants, promoting the well-being of everyone present.
  4. Ongoing Monitoring and Evaluation:
    • Our commitment to sanitation extends beyond a one-time effort, as we implement ongoing monitoring and evaluation processes.
    • Regular inspections and feedback mechanisms allow us to assess the effectiveness of our sanitation measures.
    • This continuous improvement approach ensures that our procedures adapt to evolving health and safety standards, maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness.
  5. Handwashing: A Fundamental Practice:
    • Handwashing is a cornerstone of our hygiene protocol, emphasizing its fundamental role in maintaining health.
    • Children, teachers, and staff are encouraged to wash their hands regularly throughout the day.
    • Thorough and effective handwashing techniques are emphasized before and after meals, after using the restroom, and after engaging in activities that may involve contact with germs.
    • This fundamental practice instills a sense of responsibility and contributes to a healthy and hygienic learning environment.
