Security & Safety
We believe strongly in the importance of security for you, your child, and our staff. At ABC Happy Kids, we have procedures in place for proper pick-up and drop-off of children in our care.
Checking In and Out
In order to gain access into our building, parents are given a unique passcode. Upon entering our building, in order to gain entry past our front desk, parents must log in again with their child on our dedicated computer system. From here, the parents will escort their child to the proper classroom. Checking out any child will require the parent or guardian to go through the same procedures.
All visitors to our Learning Academy must sign the visitor log and state the purpose of their visit. To ensure the security of the children and our teachers, picture identification is required for all unfamiliar visitors. In addition, visitors are never left alone in our Learning Academy.
Procedure for Identifying Children
The safety and well being of your child is very important to us at ABC Happy Kids. To ensure that all children are accounted for at all times, our teachers mark each child present on the class attendance when the child arrives. Head counts and roll are taken at major transition times throughout the day. Following outdoor play, teachers will walk the playground to ensure that all children have entered the building.
As a safety measure, ABC Happy Kids keeps a file of people authorized to pick up each child in case of an emergency. The file is based on the information you provide on the enrollment forms. Please notify the Director in writing of any changes, as children will not be released without proper authorization. Should a fire, severe weather, or other emergencies occur, it is crucial that children respond in a safe and orderly fashion. Therefore, children participate in regular drills and practices so they will know what to do in the case of an actual emergency.
Child Security At It's Best
Our Keyless Entry System limits access to our facility by allowing entry only to authorized staff and families. Unique ID codes are assigned to each person eliminating the cost and hassle of lost keys or magnetic swipe cards. Codes may be disabled at any time providing a safe, secure environment for children and peace of mind for parents.
