Each Kids ‘R’ Kids School and Academy is equipped with safety and security measures put in place to protect the precious students that fill the locations every week. Safety is especially important to Michele Seckinger, co-owner of two Kids ‘R’ Kids preschools in South Carolina.
Because Kids ‘R’ Kids knows that security is an important issue for all parents and teachers, the schools employ the most effective methods available to ensure the safety of each child. This includes not only giving each employee an extensive state-mandated background checks, but also, in the case of Kids ‘R’ Kids Greer and Kids ‘R’ Kids Greenville, taking it a step further with federal screenings as well.
“As a franchise owner of Kids ‘R’ Kids, the high focus on quality, safety and security was a major factor in the choice to join the Kids ‘R’ Kids family,” said Michele. “It is our intent to go above and beyond other upstate preschools’ safety and security procedures, and even beyond the state requirements to make sure that every student in our facility is protected and every parent is comforted, knowing their child is safe.”
Each Kids ‘R’ Kids facility includes a secure coded entry so only staff and families with the protected code can access the entrance. This ensures unauthorized visitors are never a risk to enrolled chidren’s safety. Also, the front desk is always staffed – further preventing unauthorized visitors.
Every classroom is equipped with security cameras for front desk monitoring. Parents can also sign in through the secure, password-protected Internet site to view their child’s classroom activities at any time of the day. Parents also have the opportunity to visit during the day to observe their child through the schools’ tempered glass walls – offering the best possible view of who is caring for their children. The glass walls are also cleaner and safer than traditional school walls.
“We felt it was very important to offer as much visibility to the parents as possible,” said Darlene Barnwell, director of marketing for Kids ‘R’ Kids International. “Having these security measures as a standard feature of each Kids ‘R’ Kids School and Academy was crucial in developing this franchise, and it has proved to have a vast impact on franchisees as they select a company to be involved with.”
Other safety procedures at Kids ‘R’ Kids preschools nationwide are: seat belts on each school bus, cribs built for maximum viewing on all sides, doors with padded hinges so little fingers aren’t’ pinched, frequent safety drills and the highest safety measures for food preparation and storage. Additionally, teachers are trained in infant, child and adult CPR and First Aid.
