In order to ensure the safety of our families, it is imperative that we perform background checks on all volunteers who work regularly with them.

This background check is paid for by Saranam but if you wish to offset this cost, we welcome your donation.

COVID Safety Measures

We are committed to ensuring the health and safety of our community. We have implemented several preventative measures to inhibit the spread of COVID19. These policies include:
  • All staff, families and volunteers over the age of 12 must be vaccinated
  • All surfaces in common areas will be cleaned regularly
  • Anyone exposed to COVID or feeling unwell should avoid visiting the campus until a negative test result is obtained

We appreciate your adherence to these procedures and thank you for helping us promote wellness in our community. If you have any questions, please contact our office.
