Regular Handwashing Promotes Healthy Habits

Your child, friends, and teachers wash their hands at regular intervals throughout the day to eliminate germs, reduce the risk of transmission, and encourage hand-care as part of the new normal.

Social Distancing For Your Assurance

At drop-off and pick-up times, parents practice physical distancing to maintain peace of mind for the whole school community and keep those moments stress-free and straightforward.

Smaller Class Sizes Reduce The Risks

As they learn and play in a smaller group, your child gets lots of care and attention while still interacting with their friends in a safe environment with a lower risk of transmitting any nasty germs.
