Healthy Schools Act
The new Healthy Schools Act requires that Child Care Centers create an Integrated Pest Management plan (IPM), which involves using pesticides in a manner that minimizes risks to people, property and the environment. Disinfectants are considered pesticides, as they kill germs and can be harmful to others when not used properly. Our 4S Ranch Center Director, Tobi Steiner, is designated as Kids’ Care Club’s IPM Coordinator. She has completed the required IPM training and has implemented some changes to our policies and procedures to ensure that we continue to provide the safest care possible. These changes include using microfiber cloths and properly notifying families of all pesticides that we use. Below you will find our IPM plan as a downloadable PDF. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
