Disposable Shoe Cover Policy
At Kidi Kingdom Child Care we
pride ourselves in educating our children in safe and clean world class
centre's. We have recently introduced a disposable shoe cover policy to
ensure the health and hygiene of our infants is of the highest priority.

Rooms Clean and Sterile
Disposable shoe covers help
you protect the room from the bacteria and dust on your shoes. In cases
such as these, shoe covers can mean the difference between success and
failure for a clean and sterile environment. Our disposable shoe cover
policy allows you to mitigate concern with visitors and new employees by
maintaining cleanliness and sterility.
Wherever educators walk, they
take something from where they were to wherever they are going. For most
this isnít a problem, but for those dealing with infants some materials
create cross-contamination and can cause huge complications for
illnesses and germs being spread.
If proper procedures are not
applied, that could mean the movement of germs and bacteria throughout
the play space. However, disposable shoe covers keep both contamination
from shoes, and contaminated shoes from spreading the disease.
Infants crawl around
on the floor. With childrenís immune systems being lower at this age, it
is easier to contract illnesses. It is not uncommon for a child to come
home with different symptoms every few months. Our centre has the
highest quality of hygiene regimens in place, although it can be
difficult to keep the floors clean and free from germs, the introduction
of disposable shoes will ensure the highest level of hygiene practices
are implemented and maintained.
Employees and parents
walk around in their shoes all day, whether at their place of employment
or out running errands. When it comes time to drop off and pick up their
child from the centre, who knows what is on the bottoms of their shoes?
The centre disposable shoe policy will ensure the floors are contaminant
free where children crawl and play. Contaminants can still be tracked in
on the bottoms of socks and bare feet. This is why it makes sense to use
disposable shoe covers to keep these environments clean.
