Shoeless environment: To negate the chemicals, germs and oils that shoes can track on the floors, we provide children with "Plae" shoes to wear throughout the facility and on our playgrounds. Playtime on the floors is a core part of each child's discovery experience and shoeless settings help keep the floors clean and safe for children to crawl, walk, run and play.
Custom air filtration: Three individual air filtration systems are continuously filtering the air in our facility in order to maintain optimal air quality and to alleviate air born germs.
Laundering of Sheets and Blankets: We provide crib sheets, cot sheets and blankets used during nap times which are laundered at our facility.
No-touch lights and toilets: Bathroom lights are featured with sensors that automatically turn on upon entering the bathroom. Toilets, too, are equipped with sensors to eliminate the need for dirty hands to touch the toilet handles. We offer push/pull bathroom doors to avoid dirty hands from touching door handles upon leaving the bathroom.
Time tailored sinks: Pre-timed push sink handles are featured on every sink faucet. This eliminates the need for the children to have to turn off the sink faucet once their hands are germ free.
Stand-alone facility: Our private 2.5 acre stand-alone facility located directly on the Penn/Princeton Medical Campus, ensures unnecessary interaction with the outside public.
Natural environment and playground: Our playground has been designed with environmentally friendly playground equipment, an organic garden and natural safety surfaces. A patio area with overhead canopy is a means for our children to enjoy nature and the outdoors during inclement weather to smell the rain or watch the snow fall. Surrounded by natural parks, with direct access to walking paths, our children have endless opportunities for active recreation and exploration.
Organic children's meals in our Café: Mealtimes in our café provide an opportunity for staff to encourage the children in the development and importance of healthy eating practices. We strive to provide and promote healthy eating patterns and positive attitudes towards healthy eating by our children and educators. All children's meals, prepared on-site, will feature locally grown, organic, natural hormone free food, with an emphasis on whole foods and fresh fruits and vegetables.
