Safety, Health, and Security

As important as education is, nothing matters more so than the safety, security and health of our children. Rest assured that proper protection and preparedness are critical considerations
in everything we do here at Kandyland Kids.

Transportation

     For field trips we only use NYS licensed and bonded motorcoach transportation companies and drivers.

          All drivers undergo stringent testing and are trained in defensive driving skills.

               When appropriate, we use infant and toddler seats that are safe and reliable.

Playgrounds

     All playground equipment is safe, sturdy and maintained periodically to assure they are secure and in good working order.

         We have safe zones with soft landing areas if your child takes a tumble.

               All playgrounds are contained within secure fencing and padlocked gates.

                    All play is well supervised by attentive staff.

Wellness

     We assess every child’s health by talking with parents and monitoring for symptoms during the course of each day.

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

Sanitation

     We clean our centers daily and as needed with safe, non-toxic cleaning products.

          Cleaning supplies are locked safely out of reach of children.
               We clean and sanitize 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.
          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 / Authorization

     Our centers are secured so that only authorized staff and families may enter.

          Only pre-approved people with photo identification may pick-up your child.

               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 centers include smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers.

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 lock-down situations.
          We have an emergency evacuation plan and regularly conduct drills.
               We don’t just have a plan, we regularly test and train so our people are ready.

Food/Meals 

     We are a Nut Free facility.

         All perishable food is refrigerated.
            Our menu is planned by a registered dietitian so your child eats nutritious foods.
