A fenced area where kids can play outside can reduce your child’s risk of wandering off. Not only is a fence important because of the form of fence, a fence that small bodies cannot possibly squeeze through and get trapped in is also important as a major safety measure.Have a look at The Kindle School – Houston Preschool for more info on this.
Many day care centres are separated into age-appropriate spaces; a major safety precaution is the walls in and out of these rooms. Most facilities use half doors and baby gates to hold kids in one spot where they can be cared for more easily, but where the rest of the centre can easily see what is going on in the area.
There are likely to be germs festering wherever children congregate. There are certain things that you can do as a parent to lower the rate of illness. Teach your child about good hygiene habits from an early age; bathe them as soon as they arrive home from day care. Teach them not to drink after other people and when they cough, to cover up. Take a good look at the care centre to see if in and around baby change stations, and near where food is consumed, there is hand sanitizer.
Just to ensure that your day care centre only allows your child to leave with the people you have mentioned, keep the list short to prevent any misunderstanding, just to be safe. Ask anyone who comes to pick up your child’s care provider ID, even though they’ve been there before.
It might sound a little drastic, but many day care centres have tonnes of people coming and going all day long, and it’s easy to remember and equate someone’s face with the wrong situation. It is best to be extra cautious when your child is at risk of anything happening.
Day care is also a vital part of parents’ lives, never harming someone by taking a few extra precautions. Better than sorry, to be safe.
