Since we have faced a worldwide pandemic, beginning in March of 2020, TLCC has implemented additional safety precautions and measures in order to keep all staff, children, and family members safe. We have always prided ourselves on a tidy, clean, sanitized environment but these additional steps are an extra layer of protection for our TLCC family.
Every morning, as teachers and children arrive, they follow a safety routine. Upon arrival the bottom of their shoes are sprayed with rubbing alcohol, their temperature is taken, and they wash their hands before doing anything else. Only staff and TLCC children are allowed in our buildings at this time for safety reasons.
Toys are cleaned during nap time with bleach and water or disinfectant wipes. Bathrooms are wiped down during the day. Cleaners sanitize and disinfect at the end of the day in preparation for the next morning.
Handwashing is crucial for young children. We teach them to wash their hands thoroughly for 20 seconds and teach them how to do it. We read books about masks and why we need to wear them. Our children are super heroes!
