Health & Safety Policies.

Rest easy knowing your child is in good hands. Little Steps Pre-K's rigorous safety plan promises your child a secure, fun environment to learn and thrive.


First Aid

We take every precaution to ensure your child’s safety. First Aid provisions are available should your child become ill or suffer a minor injury. Our staff members are trained to administer CPR and first aid, and will contact emergency personnel as needed. Parents/guardians will be notified if a significant injury or accident occurs. Whether an injury report will be filed depends on the severity of the injury and is at the discretion of the staff person on duty and the administrator. Little Steps Pre-K does not have a nurse on staff.



If your child is prescribed any medication, the parent/guardian must provide the medication in its original prescription bottle with the prescribed dosage indicated. Our staff will administer the medication as directed by the doctor.



Should an emergency arise, we follow a comprehensive safety plan. Our staff are trained to carry out evacuations, lockdowns, and other procedures. We hold drills regularly to practice and update these procedures. Emergency procedures are available for your review in our building.



To prevent the spread of illness at Little Steps Pre-K, we urge parents/guardians to keep sick children at home. If your child is sick when he/she awakens, please do not send him/her to school. We do not have a nurse's office for "sick patients." If your child becomes ill while in our care, you will be asked to arrange for immediate pick-up. We will call the people on your emergency list if you are unavailable.


Food and Feeding

Little Steps Pre-K provides a nutritious breakfast, morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack as part of our participation in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Child and Adult Care Food Program. Parents/guardians must complete a Meal Benefit Income Eligibility Form to ensure our continued participation in the program and to determine your eligibility for free or reduced-price meals. Please notify our staff of your child’s food sensitivities or allergies in writing. Parents/guardians of infants may supply breast milk or formula for feeding.


Play Areas and Playgrounds

Little Steps Pre-K offers 2,000 square feet of carpeted flooring for your children to safely climb, jump, and explore. Our space also includes an eating area and creativity studio. Recess is often held outside, weather permitting. Please make sure your child has appropriate clothing to wear outside.



Our staff cleans and disinfects the play and eating area daily. Children are required to wash their hands with soap and water before eating.



Our students’ security is of vital importance. The front door is the only access point to our facility and is monitored at all times. The facility is monitored inside and out by security cameras. Parents and visitors are required to make appointments to visit our facilities, and must sign in upon arrival. Visitors are not permitted to disturb instruction or daily routine.



Our goal to ensure each child is cared for, supervised, and safe. Our supervision policies and instructor to child ratio complies with state and local regulations.



Your child’s wellness is crucial for their continued learning and development. We practice sanitary habits at our center, to prevent the spread of illness. We ask that students who are sick or have been absent for sickness remain home and obtain a doctor’s note upon returning to preschool. Parents/guardians should notify our staff about any illnesses, injuries, or problems that occur at home.
