To help ensure the security of our school our playground is surrounded by a extended fence which is inaccessible from the outside. Access to the building is restricted to families who have obtained a code which is changed at regular intervals. Our staff is trained in CPR and First Aid, which is kept current with regular trainings. The Center Director has also obtained her Child Care Health Advocate Certification which allows her to better support the teachers in the area of Health and Safety.
