Well, by now you’ve probably heard the C-word about a trillion times in the media and pretty much everywhere else too. I should have written this about 6 months ago (my wife would say I procrastinated), but in light of the heightened awareness and caution, we want to take this time to explain what our normal cleaning procedures are and what steps we are taking to increase the amount of cleaning and disinfecting we are doing for peace of mind.

You know us. We are an open book. Lindsay and I are parents of 4 kids and are in the exact same spot as you are when it comes to all this madness. We don’t know what to expect. We just know what we can do to help prevent it. So We are going to go over what we do to clean The Wiggle Room normally and the extra steps too!

Normal Cleaning Procedures

We take pride in how clean our facility is. While we are open, we keep the space free and clear of trash, debris and other items on the floor that obstruct movement and safety. We clean up so you don’t have too!

During the normal course of a day, we use a general cleaner for spills, spots and things of that nature. We use a disinfectant 2 to 3 times a day on all surfaces that are touched often like door handles, countertops, faucets, toilet levers, etc. This is a constant effort. Throughout the whole day, the high traffic touched areas get cleaned at least twice. 

We have 8 hand sanitizing stations located throughout our space as well. The soap in the bathrooms is all disinfecting soap, not just the foaming kind. We clean tables and chairs in the kitchens daily. 

After we close is when most of the disinfection happens. We follow 2 schedules:

One is our general cleaning schedule like vacuuming, putting toys away cleaning bathrooms, clearing trash, things of that nature. Our other is our disinfection schedule which is like the bible here at TWR. It is a weekly rotation of deep cleaning of all the things in The Wiggle Room. Deep cleaning means getting on the ground and spraying each individual piece down with disinfectant and cleaning it with a clean microfiber cloth. We take the most time to do this as it’s the most important step of closing. 

Extra Steps

The extra steps we are taking because of this new health concern are as follows:

  • Increased disinfecting of high traffic areas from 2 to 3 times a day to hourly. This includes door handles, faucets, surfaces, toilet levers, etc.
  • We have increased our use of an electrostatic disinfecting process from once a week to every night at closing. This will GREATLY reduce the risk of transmission from surface touch. 
  • Increase our cleaning and disinfecting of our bathrooms to once every 1 or 2. 

Sick Policy

We follow the sick policies of daycares.
  • If your child has had a fever within 24 hours. Please stay home and rest! We don’t want any residual illness from a recently fever-free child to spread.
  • If your child has vomiting or unexplained diarrhea please do not come until that has resolved and 24 hours have passed since the last event. 
  • Runny noses and coughs are fine as long as they aren’t accompanied by a fever or other viral symptoms.
