We’re Continuing to Implement Modified Daily Procedures for Health & Safety
During this pandemic, and beyond, providing child care services will be done in a thoughtful and safe manner. Daily Academy operations will continue to adhere to our strict health practices along with additional modifications that comply with the Maryland Department of Public Health (MDPH), U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Kiddie Academy and several other government agencies regulating child care.
Some of the steps we have and will continue to take include:
A newly purchased HALO DISINFECTION SYSTEM which generates a turbulent aerosol and vapor that delivers a complete surface disinfection throughout the building.
Checking children and staff temperatures each day upon entry into the school.
Increasing the quantity of hand sanitizer stations throughout the school.
Using a 3-step cleaning process (wash, rinse, disinfect) for toys and surfaces.
Removing and sanitizing mouthed toys immediately.
Regularly laundering soft items such as bedding, boppy pillows, dress up items, puppets, etc.
Regularly sanitizing high-touch surfaces in common areas, door handles, touch screens and switches.
Sanitizing playground equipment multiple times a day.
Limiting entry into strictly the foyer of the building
Adhering to the updated maximum group capacity of 15 children in an area.
Requiring anyone inside the academy above the age of five to wear face masks when possible.
