5 Ways We Keep Our Play Space Clean
We know cleanliness is important to your children’s safety and your enjoyment of our indoor playground. To ensure that we’re providing you and your littles with the best experience possible, we wanted to share five ways that we are keeping our indoor play area clean.
1 – Socks Only
Our play area is a socks only environment. I don’t want to gross you out here, but studies have shown that fecal matter is present on 96% of shoes. It seems we step in poop far more than we realize! Shoes are covered in germs and bacteria and we don’t want that ending up on the hands or in the mouths of our little crawlers. We have provided cubbies and shoe racks outside of our play area for your shoes. While we ask that you bring your own socks, we do have some for purchase at our counter in case you forget yours at home.
2 – Washing and Vacuuming Floors
While we attempt to keep our play area floors clean with our socks only policy, we also mop and vacuum our floors and play mats daily. Because so many of our little visitors are crawlers, we want to make sure that the floors are as clean here as they are in your home.
3 – Toys Are Cleaned Regularly
Our toys are cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis. We use an all-natural cleaner to make sure your littles aren’t touching harsh chemicals. We also have a UV sanitizer that we use to sterilize our smaller toys like rattles and wooden train pieces. Our Coral UV sanitizer uses an ultraviolet light to destroy germs by breaking down their DNA.
4 – Mouthed Toys Bin
Sharing is caring, but not when it’s germs. To make sure our little friends aren’t sharing their germs with their friends, we have a mouthed toys bin in our infant area. If your child has been enjoying a toy with his or her mouth, please place it in the bin and it will be washed and sanitized before it’s returned to its play station.
5 – Food Restrictions
No food is permitted in the play area. We ask that guests enjoy their snacks at the outside tables provided. Not only does this help to eliminate crumbs, but it also helps us to keep kids safe who may have known or unknown allergies to certain foods. While we do allow guests to bring in outside snacks for their littles, we ask to consider allergies and ensure that outside food is peanut free.
