Is Your Child’s Preschool Clean Enough?Posted by Guarantee Green Team on September 10th, 2012
Your little one brings home lots of fun things from preschool, noodle art, silly songs and tons of germs! Although it’s impossible to protect your children from preschool germ sharing, there are many ways schools can provide a sanitary environment for your children. Checking to make sure your child’s preschool is clean enough is essential to keep your child healthy.
Rugs, bathrooms, and all eating surfaces should be cleaned every day by either the teachers or a dedicated cleaning staff. At least once a week all sleeping mats, crib areas and children’s toys should be cleaned and disinfected. If the room has a refrigerator, make sure that it is checked weekly so that any out of date foods are disposed of.
Most sheets and blankets used by preschool and daycare children are brought from home, and should be washed at home once a week. If the school provides any sheets or blankets they should also be washed once a week if they are used by the same child or in between uses by different children.
Check with local and state laws in your areas, but most of them require that schools have their carpets professionally shampoo cleaned anywhere from every other month to once a year.
Help your little one stay strong and healthy this school year by making sure that their preschool is nice and clean.
