Important Health and Safety information

Maple Lawn Montessori places the utmost priority on the health and safety of the children in our care, our team members, and the families we serve.

Cleaned – Ongoing throughout the day and evening

To maintain a clean and hygienic environment, our cleaning staff in all schools have increased their frequency in daily cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces, classrooms, furniture, shared areas and items to ensure the safety and well-being of our staff and children. This would avoid contamination from the shared items used in school.

Sanitized – Continuous air scrubbing and purification system*

Above and beyond the health and safety requirements for any child care system. Our centers are installing an enhanced air purification and filtration system with Advanced Oxidation Technology. Similar in design to what is used in healthcare, food processing plants, and other highly sensitive environments, it significantly reduces infectious airborne pathogens by purifying the air. HEPA filters remove airborne particulates.

Transparent – Secure Online Video Monitoring

Stay connected to your child throughout the day from work or home. Our Internet Monitoring System enables you to see your child in real-time over a secure, password-protected internet connection.
