Falls Church Merrifield Preschool

A Classical Preschool Education

Child Safety

Child Safety is always our highest priority.  If a stranger comes to our facility, they will find a locked door.  Only parents and staff can enter the preschool, and each parent is issued a FOB for electronic access or a key code.  We take physical security very seriously so that only those who belong in the preschool have access to the children.  Our facilities are child-proof and age appropriate, and everything is relatively new and in good condition.  Corners are protected with corner protectors.  Regarding health, our staff is certified with Medical Administration Training and CPR.  Our HVAC system has UV sanitization in the ducts to kill germs without allowing them to recycle in the classroom.  This helps to make outbreaks of sickness less frequent and less severe.  We also frequently wipe down our toys and play surfaces with sanitizing solution to minimize the spread of germs.  Our teacher-child ratios are always compliant with state standards, and our staff is second to none in providing a safe environment conducive to learning.
