Health & Safety

Enhanced Protocols at Stepping Stones Child Development Centers

The health, safety, and well-being of children, families, and staff is our top priority. We have always adhered to rigorous health, hygiene, and disinfecting practices, and now follow enhanced safety protocols, which continue to evolve as new learning around COVID-19 develops.

Health Screenings and Face Coverings

Daily health screenings and temperature checks are required for all adults and children in the center. Adults in the center always wear masks or face coverings. 

Distancing and Classroom Size

We practice physical distancing by reducing classroom sizes, keeping consistent groupings, and limiting outdoor play areas to one group at a time. 

Enhanced Health Practices

We have strengthened our already rigorous cleanliness and hygiene practices with increased cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting of surfaces and items in classrooms.
