Emergency Prepardnessness Kit 🚨

Is your childcare center ready for an emergency evacuation? Do you have a shelter in place if something happens to your building? Every year during our re-eval, I check out the contents of our kit! I think about what we can add and if any of our emergency plan needs revision. #emergency #emergencypreparedness #childcarebusiness #memphischildcare #preschool #beprepared

Research has shown conversation with your infant jump starts important brain development that sets the stage for lifelong learning. And while high-pitched, sing-song tones may capture your baby's attention, the best way for them to learn is to be spoken to like adults. Make sure you are sharing sounds and speaking to your baby in complete sentences. There’s no need for baby talk. Reading, singing and healthy conversation are extremely important to the development of young children. ❀️ #infant #babytalk #memphischildcare #earlychildhoodeducation #childcarebusiness

[07/25/21]   There is a viral post going around about a local childcare center who had students who caught Hand Foot & Mouth Disease. Let me help explain it because I see many are shocked by this common virus.

HFM is extremely contagious and almost impossible to stop and catch. It is also completely harmless. It’s an airborne virus and it’s most contagious BEFORE the bumps or symptoms appear. Its also sweeping the world as well as RSV. There have been posts on CNN and almost every childcare center battles this one time or another.

HFM is a harmless side effect of a common cold. It looks worst than it is. The bumps actually mean the cold virus is leaving the body. We have had only one case of it but no other reported cases this season. πŸ™ŒπŸ½ Wearing masks have helped stop the spread. 🀞🏽 Some preschools had classrooms of children home sick. The children are so close playing throughout the day that it spreads quickly in toddlers rooms once one child brings it to school.

Per DHS you do not have to close down to clean. You just have to do a deep cleaning of that room and notify parents when you have a confirmed case.

I hope this helps give some guidance as childcare centers are made to be villains for things we have very little control over.

I sent out a informational video to our families about HFM so they could be on the lookout for symptoms. I will post the link in the comments.

Childcare owners/directors some of the things you can do is invest in air purifiers and disinfectant fog machines. We run our air purifiers through the week and fog the whole center every weekend. NEVER stop taking temps BEFORE children come in the building and exclude any child with a contagious symptom. If you need help picking out a machine and disinfectant send us a dm. We will be glad to help!

Stay healthy! Wear your mask! Be kind! ❀️
