Spring into safety

Spring is the perfect time to check your safety programs.

  • Do you have plenty of sun block (SPF 15 or higher) to protect children playing outdoors?
  • Are the supplies in your first aid kit sufficient and up-to-date?
  • Are there any defects on the playground that need to be corrected?
  • Have any bees, hornets, or wasps nests developed? If so, have you removed them?
  • Does your staff maintain the proper staff-to-child supervision ratios?
  • Have you reviewed your crisis management procedures and conducted a practice fire drill?
  • Is adequate protection in place to prevent a child from falling out of windows?
