Benefits of On-site Registered Nurses
With our on-site registered nurses observing sanitation routines and monitoring the health of children and staff, we are able to give parents the peace of mind that their child is an environment that places their safety and well-being as the #1 priority. Our nurses evaluate injuries in a timely manner, contacting parents when necessary. Their ability to quickly assess symptoms indicating illness and to advise parents and staff accordingly provides added assurance benefiting the overall health of the school community.
Health and Happiness Wellness Curriculum
Our nurses are the “Mrs. Health and Happiness” of each school, instilling life-long lessons about nutrition, hygiene, dental health, sharing with friends, fire safety, and much more. Dressed in their white coats trimmed with heart-shaped buttons and red and white ribbons, Mrs. Health and Happiness reflects calm, kindness, caring, and joy. This very special nurse blends stories, hands-on activities, and a bit of silliness to promote our children’s physical and social-emotional well-being.
Best Health Practices
Maintaining a healthy environment is the basis for the best health practices to which Kensington School adheres. Each family is provided with Kensington School’s Best Health Practices to ensure they are aware of current policies and guidance pertaining to health and wellness at the schools.
All children attending Kensington School must be vaccinated according to the prescribed vaccination schedule for their age. A State of Illinois Health Certification form is part of each child’s file requirements and must be completed prior to admission.
