Cleaning Schedules of Play Venues | COVID-19 Precautions


Share with other Parents or Go Back

With the recent Noval Coronavirus situation, many parents are worried about heading out and many have refrained from bringing the kids for non-essential activities. 

A recent survey that we did on BYKidO's Instagram, revealed that while parents (86% of 290 respondents) plan to make changes to their plans to go out, many parents (70% of 404 respondents) still prefer to head outdoors compared to being at home. 

In view of parent's concerns on the Coronavirus situation and yet wanting to go out, we reached out to play venues in Singapore and to ask them about their cleaning and sanitsation plans. Below are the replies that we received, and we will continue to update this list as we hear back. 

Airzone 

Cleaning Schedule: Before the virus outbreak, we do regular cleaning such as dusting at least twice a week and disinfecting once a week. Now, we have stepped up the disinfection and cleaning by increasing the frequency to every day on all surfaces that are regularly touched by hands; counters, shelves, shoe racks, etc.

Anything else to note: We have increased the frequency of washing the balls in the ball pit from twice a month to once a week. For the past 3 weeks we have been washing the balls in our ball pit on Thursdays.

This is not fixed (due to staff schedules) but will be done every week on one of the weekdays.

Temperature taking: All guests are required to undergo temperature screening as well as sanitizing their hands before being allowed on the nets. Guests who are unwell will be denied entry and asked to reschedule their session to another date.

For our staff, we do temperature screening twice a day and it will be recorded into a log sheet. Anyone feeling unwell will be sent home or to the doctors immediately.

PLAY! by KinderPlay

 

 

Cleaning Schedule: We clean all surfaces (including the floor) with hospital-grade child-safe disinfectant at least once a day (sometimes after a group of children have played)

Anything else to note: On a weekly basis, we replace all balloons. We clean all balls in the ballpit on a monthly basis using our ball cleaning machine. This is scheduled around two weeks after the monthly sanitisation by our professional cleaning vendor.  This will ensure the ballpit is sanitised roughly every two weeks. 

We run monthly sanitisation by our professional cleaning vendor, using the same hospital-grade child-safe disinfectant. This was last done on Monday, 3 Feb and the next is scheduled for Thursday, 5 March.

Temperature Taking: Temperature checks for all staff on duty once when reporting for work and once every 6 hours until end of shift. Any staff that is unwell will be asked to return home and to see a doctor. More details of our precautions may be seen here: https://www.instagram.com/p/B8IgebvgJe8/

Waka Waka

Cleaning ScheduleWe have an in-house cleaner to help with the cleaning of the indoor playground on a daily basis. This includes regular sweeping, dusting, and wiping of surfaces such as tables, glass doors and shelves. Toilets are also cleaned on a daily basis. We do antimicrobial treatments on a monthly basis as well (we engage an external vendor who helps with this, and the process takes places after operating hours once the playground is empty).

Anything else to note: We segregate various days of the week to do clean-up of toys and various areas of the indoor playground. For example, we have scheduled wipe down of 'Level 2' or the upper areas of the main play area, volcano structure + slide, bouncy castle. On other days of the week there will be sanitization of toys and wipe down of the toddler area.

We're also getting the microbial treatment to be done twice in a month, stepping it up from our existing once a month.

KidZania Singapore

Kidzania Singapore

Cleaning Schedule: We have stepped up the disinfection and cleaning by increasing the frequency to before and after every activity cycle on all surfaces in the establishment.

KidZania Singapore will be closed on selected Wednesdays in the month of February (5, 12, 19 and 26 Feb) and March (4, 11 and 25 Mar) for the City to conduct maintenance checks and step up our cleaning efforts for the benefits of all our visitors.

Anything else to note: Lifebuoy sanitisers are made available at our entry and exit points, as well as all around the City for all visitors use. 

We have also implemented an advanced booking system for kids to pre-select role-play activities for the day on non-peak days (weekdays and school days). Kids are able to choose which activities they would like to do and pre-plan their day at the Job Information Centre. With a planned itinerary, kids can head straight to their allocated slot at the given time, without the need to queue at the establishments.  Each role-play cycle is planned out in 30-minute intervals to allow the wiping down all surfaces with child-safe disinfectant before the next cycle of kids enter.

Temperature Taking: All visitors are required to undergo temperature-taking before being allowed into KidZania Singapore. Visitors who are unwell will be denied entry and asked to reschedule their visit to another date.

For our team members, they are required to do take their temperature twice a day and it will be recorded into their personal log sheet. Anyone feeling unwell will be advised to seek medical attention promptly.
