Evironmental Safety

Providing a safe and healthy environment is a primary concern of Center staff.  The Center is inspected by a Health and Safety Inspector from the Town of Plymouth in order to meet state licensing regulations.  Care must be taken regarding natural materials in the playgrounds and used in the classrooms.  The Center playground is maintained by the University’s Physical Plant Grounds crew and the Center is cleaned on a daily basis by the University’s Physical Plant Building Maintenance crew.  Center staff do frequent classroom and playground safety checks and any concerns are dealt with immediately.

Each classroom and the Center office are equipped with a “panic alarm” in which Center staff is able to call for emergency assistance, if needed.

Drugs, alcohol, weapons and any other significant hazard that poses a risk to children and adults are prohibited.
