Safety & Security | Maple Lawn Montessori of Chantilly

Our staff is constantly monitoring the environment at our center to ensure that all children can play, learn, and interact in a safe and nurturing indoor and outdoor classroom.

  • Safety starts with perimeter cameras and a security gate, where families must key in to reach the front door.
  • Sign-in and sign-out sheets enable staff to monitor who drops off and picks up each child.
  • Your child will be released only to those individuals whom you list in the child’s enrollment records. A photo I.D. is required.  All records are kept on a secure site on our computers.
  • Parents or guardians may enter the facility at any time to observe or pick up their children.
  • Fingerprinting and background checks are performed on all staff and volunteers.
  • Fences and locked gates surround the facility.
  • Low teacher-child ratios ensure that there are sufficient teachers and other adults available to adequately supervise the children in care.
  • Classroom doors and classroom walls have windows for monitoring.
  • We are a well center, monitoring every child’s health on a daily basis.  We notify parents when a child does not feel well to help prevent an illness from spreading.
  • Toys, surfaces, and floors are sanitized throughout the day to prevent the spread of germs.
  • Heat and smoke detectors monitor the facility.
  • Approved surfaces, fall zones, and playground equipment are installed in all outdoor play areas.
  • A Disaster and Mass Casualty Plan has been developed and is regularly reviewed by the staff.  It is available in the main office.
