Caring for Your Child Comes First

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sunshine Face Academy cares for your child like you would.

 

Education and development are important, but we know that nothing matters more than the safety, security and health of your child. That’s why protection and preparedness are critical considerations in everything we do at Sunshine Face Academy.

From first aid training for emergency situations to sanitation and ensuring a clean and healthy environment for children, we have more than 17 years of experience ensuring that every child is happy and healthy. Although scraped knees are a part of growing up, you can have confidence that your child is cared for in a secure, nurturing environment every day.

Wellness

 

  • We assess every child’s health by talking with parents and monitoring for symptoms during the course of each child’s day with us; we increase assessment during flu season.

  • We notify parents when a child does not feel well to help prevent an illness from spreading.

  • Children wash their hands before entering the classroom to prevent the spread of germs.

 

Sanitation 

 

  • We clean our centers each day with safe, non-toxic cleaning products.

  • Our floors are cleaned by certified cleaning vendors.

  • Cleaning supplies are locked safely out of reach of children.

  • While other child care providers clean toys each evening, Sunshine Face Academy sanitizes toys throughout the day to help prevent the spread of germs.

  • We encourage children to wash their hands throughout the day by singing songs and teaching lessons about health and hygiene.

  • Diapering is conducted in an area separate from children’s play areas.

 

Medications 

 

  • We have strict policies for administering medication to your child to ensure they are protected.

  • Based on new research about healthy practices for infants and toddlers, we require a doctor’s note for any medication, prescription or over the counter, given to a child under 2 years to ensure safety.

  • Medications are stored securely out of the reach of children.

 

Security 

 

  • Cameras are located in every classroom for parent to view online. We know its hard to be away

      from your child. We provide a service that connects to your child daily.

  • Our center is secured so that only authorized staff and families may enter.

  • Safe, secure perimeters ensure that children can enjoy outdoor play safely.

  • We use safety gates, window guards (except fire escapes) and cap electrical outlets.

  • Our center include smoke detectors and fire extinguishers.

  • Radiators and heaters are covered to prevent your child from touching something hot.

 

Qualifications

 

  • We have dedicated, friendly caregivers who are trained in child development, early-childhood education or a related field.

  • We conduct criminal background checks to ensure trustworthy staff and passionate teachers provide the best care and education for your child.

  • Our staff and teachers are trained in first aid and CPR.

 

 Emergencies

 

  • We are serious about training for earthquakes, fires and lockdown situations.

  • We have an emergency evacuation plan at the center.

Feeding

 

  • All perishable food is refrigerated.

  • Our menu is planned by certified cooks so your child eats nutritious foods.

  • We welcome breastfeeding mothers, and we have careful policies for separating breast milk from formula.

  • We know Food allergies have been becoming more common over the past few decades, now affecting approximately 4% of all children. Food allergy is a common cause of anaphylaxis at school, with close to 20% of students with food allergies experiencing a reaction. 25% of children allergic to nuts experience allergic reactions at school even before a diagnosis of food allergy is made.

     Therefore, it is very important for Sunshine Face Academy to be prepared to treat allergic reactions in children caused by foods.
