Facility Safety

  • Electronic sign-in/out screens in the lobby (integrated into both security and attendance software)
  • Security cameras in strategic locations
  • Expansive playground areas for all age groups. Soft-fall or synthetic turf to be installed shortly.
  • Protection from the sun at an early age pays great dividends in later life. Permanent shade materials installed over large areas of the playground providing much needed sun protection to be installed shortly. (And of course, we lather our little ones in sunscreen before they go outside.) Read more about sun protection on our blog.
