The Child Care Center IPM is designed to protect our children from unwanted “pests” at our school. As of March 2017, we have not encountered any unwanted creatures in our school or on our yard. An occasional butterfly, ladybug, or roly-poly have visited our playground. But we have not had any infestations recently. We do our best to keep our school clean. In the case of unwanted pests, we have this plan in place. Notifications will go home via email, and this form will be updated. Our staff takes mandatory training on pesticide management every spring. Also, the team is approved to use cleaning products that help clear our school of any bacteria that may be unseen.
If you or one of your family members discovers some of God’s Creatures in or around our child care center, please notify one of our staff immediately. We will send someone out to investigate as soon as possible. If you feel that your child is in immediate danger, please take them to a safe place. Then call us with any information that you may have. As previously mentioned, there have not been any significant cases of infestation. We do like to provide a clean and safe environment for your child to learn and play. Your child’s well being is always our top priority! Thank you for helping us.
