Benefits of the ZONO for Kindergartens

Maintain a Germ-Free Environment in Your Early Learning Classroom

Whether you operate an early learning center or your kindergarten classroom is part of the larger K–12 school system, maintaining a germ-free environment is likely a central priority. This is especially difficult when you are juggling the needs of multiple groups of young children. While kindergarteners are not as prone to chewing on items or putting toys in their mouths, they still share toys and commonly used objects in close proximity with other children. From those paperback and board books in the reading corner to all of the pretend food in the play kitchen, there are a variety of shared items that require disinfection and sanitation on a daily basis.

You could continue to sanitize items by hand, manually spraying them and wiping them down after each early learning center. Or you could utilize a game-changing technology that offers a 99.99 percent disinfecting kill rate on non-porous surfaces and a 99.9 percent sanitizing kill rate on porous, semi-porous, and non-porous surfaces: the ZONO Disinfecting+ & Sanitizing* Cabinet.

This is a list of common kindergarten classroom  items that can be placed in the ZONO:

    • Paper and plastic books
    • Building materials like wood or plastic blocks and Legos
    • Play kitchen food and equipment
    • Craft supplies
    • Balls, jump ropes, and other recess equipment
    • Dress-up clothes and stuffed animals

When you put a ZONO in place in your kindergarten or early learning center, you will realize how transformative this technology is. Free from the burden of manual disinfecting and sanitizing practices, your team can utilize their breaks for general classroom cleaning or to prepare for upcoming classroom activities.

  2. Wheel the cart into the ZONO cabinet.
  3. Lock the cabinet and enter the start code.
  4. The disinfection and sanitation cycle will begin.
  5. After 30 minutes, check back.
  6. Items are ready for immediate use.
