Safety & Security

indoor and Outdoor Safety is our #1 Priority.

Instruction is set up to integrate safety across the curriculum and throughout the year. In addition, we practice monthly evacuation and lock down drills which involve all the children and staff.

Our Center is equipped with sprinkler systems and each classrooms has at least two exits leading to the outside of the building in the event evacuation becomes necessary.

The Center is equipped with a security entry system which prevents unauthorized or undetected entry. All visitors are required to check in and out of the center at the front desk and are escorted as required for the duration of the visit.

It is our policy that no child is released to anyone not listed on the pick-up list unless prior arrangements have been made by the parents/guardians with the Director. In addition, individuals other than the child’s parent or legal guardian must have written approval from the parent or guardian for each pickup, or we must be able to obtain telephonic pick up approval from the parent of guardian. Picture identification is required when such arrangements are made. This rule is strictly enforced!

Make Winter Safe for Kids!!!

  • Winter is an exciting time for kids. It brings great outdoor activities, such as snowboarding and skating, but also cold weather, ice and snow, which can present a danger to children. But that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy the winter. Here are some winter safety tips for both parents and children.
    • Never allow children to play outside alone. Establish a buddy system with one or more of their friends and have them look out for one another. Children younger than eight years of age should always be well supervised outside.
    • Check from time to time to make sure children are warm and dry.
    • Have younger children take frequent breaks to come inside for a warm drink.
    • Never send children outside in extreme weather conditions such as snowstorms.
    • Keep children indoors if the temperature falls below 0°F, or if the wind chill is 0°F or greater.
