Ensuring the safety and security of all the children at Children of America is our top priority, and we have taken strict measures to ensure that our infrastructure reflects this philosophy. We use one of the most advanced security management software programs on the market today.
Security starts at the door: Parents have to use a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to gain entry into the building. This enables our staff to monitor who drops off and picks up each child and records each child's entry and exit daily. Children are released ONLY to those individuals who have been listed on enrollment records and who have been confirmed by identification check.
Our outside play areas use a rubberized surface* or soft synthetic turf instead of wood chips, sand or gravel. All perimeter and playground gates are locked and monitored so children can enjoy outdoor play safely. Staff members are trained in First Aid and CPR.
We believe safety measures go beyond exterior doors. The safety of our little ones is paramount in our day-to-day world. Below is a sampling of other procedures incorporated into The COA Experience:
