Health Essentials

Our enhanced wellness and disinfection guidelines

About the Health Essentials Program at Kiddie Academy of New Market

Kiddie Academy® Educational Child Care is pleased to introduce Health Essentials, a set of standard operating procedures that can help mitigate the spread of potential infection throughout our Academies. Health Essentials is a key part of our overall COVID-19 response, expanding upon existing disinfection and health protocols that offer parents and staff peace of mind and demonstrates our commitment to creating a healthy and safe environment for learning and working.

Health Essentials guidelines are focused on four principles designed to cover various preventative, protective, and corrective measures that address COVID-19: Wellness Education, Enhanced Hygiene, Healthy Environment and Symptom Monitoring.
