Our Playground Principles
To Be Mindful
We are intentionally low tech. Our children’s biggest threat to attention building is the constant exposure to technology in their relationships. We have purposefully created an environment free of gadgets to help you be present and reconnect with your child.
To be Culturally Conscious
We celebrate and acknowledge our differences.
To Be Eco Conscious
We understand and take into account the cost vs benefit of our materials.
To Be Socially Responsible
We acknowledge the need for safe spaces for marginalized peoples. It is our aim to create those spaces whenever and wherever we can.We are committed to Differently Abled Awareness. It is our goal to create community and practice empathy for self and others.
To Create Joy & Wonder
We cannot control illness—all we can do is be conscious of it, and be proactive once we know it is present. It is difficult to know when not to bring your child to class when they are sick if you see no symptoms, and we understand this. Most illnesses have an incubation period, and symptoms of illness are not always apparent until the child is already sick. With that being said, all we can do is hope that if you notice symptoms of illness that you not come to class. Please use the guidelines below to help you decide if it's safe for others to bring your baby to class.
- When you child looks “unwell”, and is showing signs of being lethargic, do not bring them to class. Let them heal.
- If your child has a fever, do not bring them to class.
- If your child has a runny nose, do not bring them to class.
- If your child is coughing/sneezing, do not bring them to class.
We at The Baby Playgroup are very diligent about washing and sanitizing our toys and tools for class. All the teachers are rigorously trained to clean their tools after every class without exception. The cleaning solutions we use are non-chemical, safe and natural. This is just one of the ways we are committed to keeping your babies safe and healthy!
