Child Safety & Supervision
The entrance has a locked entryway for safety. No firearms or other hazardous materials are permitted on the property. Additionally, Karen’s Kids Campus is a smoke free facility.
Supervision of Infants/Mobile/Toddlers/Preschoolers:
At no time will a child be left unattended. Staff will supervise children at all times, including naptime. However, staff ratios can vary during naptime.
Children Arriving to the Center from School or Other Programs:
At times it may be necessary for a child to arrive at the center from school or another program. If a child is scheduled to arrive and does not, we will first contact the parent to confirm that the child is scheduled to be at the center that day, and then contact the program that they are to h ave arrived from. We will then consult with the parent to determine further action. For this reason, it is very important that parents contact the center when their child is not going to be attending.
The Director is responsible for the supervision of the center. The staff consists of qualified persons who have been carefully selected. Each member of the staff is competent with a special ability to work with young children and a desire to provide love and understanding for the children. All staff will be pre-screened with a thorough background check, including a criminal record check). Staff members are also trained in CPR, First Aid, communicable disease and child abuse recognition and prevention.
