Cleaning is essential to classroom management. It maintains safety, provides children with an organized and healthy environment, and preserves the longevity of furniture and equipment. All tabletops, diaper areas, toys, and school materials used by children must be cleaned and sanitized with a sanitizer, laundered in a washing machine, or washed in a dishwasher. The frequency of usage and whether the object is mouthed determine the frequency of cleaning. The chart posted in each classroom lists cleaning frequencies which must be followed with no exceptions.
Clean microwave and wipe down the lunch counter after lunch.
Use carpet sweeper/dustpan to clean food off the floor.
Sweep debris out of diaper tables throughout the day.
All educators are responsible for coordinating with their classroom team to accomplish the following tasks weekly, or as needed:
Launder all dress-up clothes and soft toys on your scheduled day.
Wash all toys in dishwasher or Zono on your scheduled day.
Sanitize cribs and mattresses—this should also occur between use by different children.
Bring in barrels from the playground for cleaners to empty trash.
Clean and sanitize vinyl furniture, push and riding toys.
