Safety & Security

Classroom and Outdoor safety is continually stressed with the children.

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 centers are equipped with sprinkler systems and each classrooms has two exits leading to the outside of the building in the event it becomes necessary to evacuate the building.

The centers are 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 purpose 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 on the pick up list 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 approval from the parent of guardian. Picture identification is required when such arrangements are made. This rule is strictly enforced!

Make Summer Safe for Kids!!!

Beat the heat and sun

Heat-related illness happens when the body’s temperature control system is overloaded. Infants and children up to 4 years of age are at greatest risk. Even young and healthy people can get sick from the heat if they participate in strenuous physical activities during hot weather. For heat-related illness, the best defense is prevention.

  • Never leave infants, children, or pets in a parked car, even if the windows are cracked open.
  • Dress infants and children in loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.
  • Schedule outdoor activities carefully, for morning and evening hours.
  • Stay cool with cool showers or baths.
  • Seek medical care immediate if your child has symptoms of heat-related illness.

Just a few serious sunburns can increase you and your child’s risk of skin cancer later in life. Their skin needs protection from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays whenever they’re outdoors.

  • Cover up. Clothing that covers your and your child’s skin helps protect against UV rays.
  • Use sunscreen with at least SPF (sun protection factor) 15 and UVA (ultraviolet A) and UVB (ultraviolet B) protection every time you and your child go outside.
