There's no way to measure the importance of providing the appropriate foundation for children to grow into their own during the first stages of their life and this is what Little Appleseed Learning Center aims to provide for the children in Gibsonia and surrounding areas. Serving the community since 2015, Little Appleseed Learning Center ensures a supportive environment where children can improve their learning capabilities while developing their personal skills.
From art shows to family projects, the school offers a comprehensive curriculum to help children have fun as they nurture their creativity and social skills. It has introduced several innovations to improve educational methods for children from 6 weeks to the age of 5, including a variety of weekly activities and the most sophisticated recreational spaces. More importantly, the school's professional team gathers all the qualities needed to guide children along as they discover their own capabilities in a safe space that's tailored to their needs.
The students' safety has always remained the school's main priority when implementing new educational methods and the arrival of COVID-19 only strengthened this. After various staff members tested positive for COVID-19, school director Beth Vislosky saw that the safety restrictions in place might not be enough to counter a potential outbreak. She found the solution in Germinator Pittsburgh's antimicrobial science and immediately requested our Gibsonia sanitizing service. Now that Little Appleseed Learning Center is part of Germinator Pittsburgh's Quarterly Protection Plan, they can count on the best antimicrobial protection all year round.
Germinator's cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting technology once again proves to be the safest solution to eradicate germs from childcare centers and similar facilities. At Little Appleseed Learning Center, we applied our patent-pending program on every part of the institution, including toys, furniture, and other items within the school's classrooms, eating spaces, and playgrounds. We also made our way through the lobby and all the office spaces to ensure safe interaction between parents and staff. By the end of the process, the entire school was thoroughly tested, sanitized, disinfected, shielded, to become a Germinator Safe Zone.
Our Patent-Pending Process
Step 1 – Test Surfaces:
We first test your surfaces for ATP using a luminometer to detect light that can come from cellular activity. This measurement immediately tells us the level of cleanliness on your surfaces.
Step 2 – Application of Genesis Surface Treatment:
Genesis is a one-step cleaner and broad-spectrum sanitizer and disinfectant treatment that harnesses the power of HOCl (hypochlorous acid) solution. Derived from naturally occurring minerals, Genesis not only eliminates odors at their source, but kills a wide range of bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA, Salmonella enterica, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and viruses including norovirus, rotavirus, and adenovirus on hard, non-porous, environmental surfaces. It meets the Association of Official Agricultural Chemists (AOAC) germicidal spray standards for Hospital Grade Disinfection and is on the EPA N List of products determined to meet the criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. As a result, this treatment will eliminate bacteria and viruses that may reside in your environment without the use of harsh chemicals or fumes.
Step 3 – Application of Bacteriostatic Finish:
The Shield is a water-based quaternary ammonium compound that imparts a durable bacteriostatic finish to a wide range of non-food contact surfaces. It is EPA-registered as effective against the growth of mold, mildew, algae, and odor-causing bacteria. This application creates an invisible barrier that combats deterioration and discoloration and promotes freshness for up to three months.
The Genesis and Shield products are applied by using an electrostatic sprayer, which is the most efficient and effective means of delivering the products to the intended application sites.
Step 4 – Retest Surfaces:
After our surface treatment and protectant services, we retest to ensure the surfaces have achieved the intended results.
