Security
We follow a strict company standard for checking-in and checking-out each child. Our doors remain locked during our hours of operations. Only parents and staff will have access to our school. We use a specialized software for parent access to the building and childcare classrooms. Parents are required to have photo identification at point of pick up, including any person who is authorized on the parent pick-up list. Our teachers are trained professionals to handle incidents that may occur in event of an emergency. Further monitoring is done with our cameras placed in the classrooms and around our building.

Environmental Cleanliness
