Practicing Everyday Preventative Actions

By Apple Valley School News, Arvada School News, Aurora School News, Brooklyn Park School News, Carlsbad School News, Chino Hills School News, Claremont School News, Dulles School News, Eastvale School News, Eden Prairie News, Elk Grove School News, Fontana School News, Health & Wellness, Irvine Oak Creek School News, Lake Ridge School News, Maple Grove School News, Meridian School News, Minnetonka School News, Natomas School News, News & Blog, Northfield School News, Reunion School News, Roseville School News, Woodbridge Caton Hill School News

Practicing everyday preventative actions are essential in helping to keep everyone healthy.

Remind everyone in your household of the importance of practicing everyday preventive actions that can help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue.
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily (e.g., tables, countertops, light switches, doorknobs, and cabinet handles) using a regular household detergent and water.
    • If surfaces are dirty, they should be cleaned using a detergent and water prior to disinfection. For disinfection, a list of products with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved emerging viral pathogens claims, maintained by the American Chemistry Council Center for Biocide Chemistries (CBC), is available at Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Fighting Productspdf iconexternal icon. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for all cleaning and disinfection products.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Always wash your hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.

The excerpt above is from CDC


What we are doing to help prevent illness

At all of our Academy’s across the nation, we are practicing everyday preventative actions. We are constantly hand washing and sanitizing all areas, including high traffic touchpoints. We are following the guidelines given by the CDC, Centers For Disease Control and Prevention. We have implemented additional procedures at our centers to detect symptoms of the virus and limit or eliminate its transmission. Temperatures will be taken of those attending our centers. We have stopped family-style serving during mealtime. Vendors that provide supplemental activities are no longer allowed into our centers. Our staff is committed to keeping and maintaining a safe and clean environment.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your Center Director at Prestige Preschool Academy.

7 Steps with Kids in the Kitchen

By Apple Valley School News, Arvada School News, Aurora School News, Brooklyn Park School News, Carlsbad School News, Chino Hills School News, Claremont School News, Cooking & Nutrition, Dulles School News, Eastvale School News, Eden Prairie News, Elk Grove School News, Fontana School News, Irvine Oak Creek School News, Lake Ridge School News, Maple Grove School News, Meridian School News, Minnetonka School News, Natomas School News, News & Blog, Northfield School News, Reunion School News, Roseville School News, Woodbridge Caton Hill School News

Here are 7 steps with kids in the kitchen, because kids love being in the kitchen! They love to help measure and mix the ingredients and read the recipe. Of course there are times when spills happen, but that is all a part of learning and the fun. In fact, having your child help in the kitchen can be turned into a perfect teaching opportunity.

How do you get started? Read through our suggested 7 steps with kids in the kitchen, and have fun!

  1. Read the recipe together. Reading aloud is perfect for pronouncing words, learning new words, and public speaking skills. Reading the recipe involves thinking, grammar, and boosts literacy.
  2. Make a shopping list. Ask your child to write down the ingredients and any supplies needed for the recipe.  Writing the shopping list is a skill for handwriting and list-making.
  3.  Take a trip to the grocery store. Allow your child to push the cart and take charge of checking the items off the list. Grocery shopping for ingredients is an opportunity to teach how to look for fresh fruits and vegetables and how to weigh the items. Show your child the prices of the items and how to choose and purchase the more affordable item to keep your grocery bill low. At the cashier stand, have your child take notice of how much the food costs. This is a lesson on using money and keeping within a budget amount.
  4. Once you have returned from the grocery store with your food treasures, now is a great time to discuss cleanliness and hygiene. Washing hands and disinfecting the food prep area are a must. Proper hand washing and disinfecting the area in the kitchen is crucial in preventing cross-contamination. Next, talk about why the fruits and vegetable need to be washed.
  5. Once you’re ready to start the process of cooking what your recipe calls for, encourage taste testing of the ingredients. It is always fun to lick the spoon, isn’t it?
  6. Of course, it goes without stating that safety is a number one concern while in the kitchen. Show your child how to properly hold kitchen shears and child-safe knives. Stove tops and ovens are another area that should be labeled as a safety concern.
  7. Last but not least, enjoy your meal together!

We have complied a great amount of kid-friendly meal ideas for kids in the kitchen on our Pinterest board. You can find some fun and easy recipes here: Cooking with Kids

Our school menu includes nourishing food for our students at all of our Prestige Preschool Academy’s. The food items are presented in a family style setting. Our menus are rotated each month to provide variety for the children. Age-appropriate substitutions are provided. We will work with your family to provide an adaptation to the menu if a child has a special nutritional need or food allergy.  Ask your Director for the current Monthly Menu at your Center. To find more information on our meals, please visit our Prestige Preschool Academy website. Prestige Preschool Academy
