Health and Safety

The health and safety of our students and staff is Towne Creek’s top priority.  


To ensure a healthy environment, the following practices have been put into place. 

Towne Creek follows the recommendations of the CDC, State and County Health department and Childcare licensing when handling communicable illnesses 



  • All teachers are First Aid/CPR certified, and they update their certification on an annual basis.  
  • High touch surface areas and toys are cleaned and disinfected several times throughout the day  
  • All students have individualized cribs or nap mats   
  • A low teacher to student ratio is maintained within our classrooms  
  • Frequent handwashing practices are followed by both teachers and students 
  • Disposable gloves are worn by staff to avoid spreading germs when serving food or assisting with the sanitary needs of students 
  • Students who become ill at school are moved to a separate sick room to be monitored.  Parents are called to pick up their child within the hour.  
  • Students sent home due to illness are not allowed to return until they have been symptom free for a full 24 hours without the aid of medication.   If sent home midday, they will not be allowed to return the next day.  
  • All teachers complete ongoing health and safety training.  



  • All staff and volunteers must complete a thorough background check.  
  • The Towne Creek school has secured entrances with access codes that change on a frequent basis.  
  • We have cameras throughout the inside and outside of the building that can be monitored throughout the day by administrative staff  
  • Emergency protocols for fire, evacuation and severe weather are practiced regularly
