BRIGHTON SCHOOLS believes in giving parents “PEACE OF MIND”. It is our job to provide you with the best communication, care and practices our industry has to offer. Below is a small list of highlights of the kinds of protocols and standards you will find at Brighton. Our Parent Handbook is the main source of all operational and program information and is available upon enrollment.
SAFETY AND SUPERVISION – is our number one goal. In addition to the regulations put into place by the Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing, Brighton Schools goes above and beyond those expectations.
EMERGENCIES – Brighton Schools students practice safety drills every month. From fire drills to shelter and place. We have a plan for it all. Our teachers have a specific training session upon hire that delves into all scenarios of evacuation possibilities.
WELLNESS – We do a daily health inspection of every student upon arrival to our school. We will continue to monitor all students throughout their day with us. We will notify the parents when a child does not feel well in order to curb any type of outbreak.
SECURITY – All of our schools are secured and have a passcode to enter. Each parent will have a code that is unique to them. This code will allow them to enter our school during regular business hours. Visitors must ring the doorbell to enter our building. All visitors must show valid ID upon arrival.
QUALIFICATIONS – All of our before and after school teachers are qualified and are trained in child development or related fields. Summer Camp counselors will have an additional 25 hours of training specific to summer. In addition, all of the staff are put through a criminal background check, as well as, CPR/first aid training to ensure our staff will be top notch and provide the best care for our students. Plus all employees must complete 10 hours of professional development training per year.
- We clean our centers daily with safe, non-toxic cleaning products.
- Cleaning supplies are locked safely out of reach of children.
- While other child care providers clean toys each evening, Brighton sanitizes toys throughout the day to help prevent the spread of germs.
- We encourage children to wash their hands throughout the day by singing songs and teaching lessons about health and hygiene.
