Health & Safety
Pumpkin Preschool holds the health and safety of each of our students in the highest of regards and exceeds state mandated regulations for their added protection.
Our schools have 24/7 locked entrances with key-code access, a strict Photo ID policy, and video and audio surveillance in all centers to ensure maximum safety for all our students. Our Playgrounds are enclosed with fences including child-safety latches on all gates. We also enforce all State Mandated Regulations, including all State of Connecticut Immunization Regulations and OSHA Protocol for the ultimate safety of each child.
Each of our centers have a professional cleaning staff come in each evening to keep our environment safe and healthy for all children.
Our cleaning services have incorporated hospital grade disinfectant spray and blue light cleaning for advanced protection during COVID. These are just some of the ways we are protecting the health of children and staff.
All full-time staff members are trained in Infant and Child CPR and First Aid. Our full-time staff is also certified in Administration of Medication. Furthermore, we provide a social Psychologist, an Educational Consultant, and an on-call Physician and Dentist for each center. We also have a registered School Nurse on staff for our facilities. If you have a child with health concerns, we are well prepared to meet his or her needs.
Pumpkin Preschool has designed an app that provides clear direction/communication to our families. It’s free and can be downloaded to any smart device. Parents receive notifications much like a text message. While initially designed to improve communication and remind parents of events and activities, as well as weather related emergencies, it is now essential to our communication of important information such as COVID related policies and updates.
Each of our locations have COVID enhanced safety policies and our directors can answer specific questions regarding requirements and precautions we are taking.
