Health & Safety
We take the health & safety of the children very seriously at Safari Childcare. We constantly review our health & safety standards to ensure we are extremely proactive in avoiding problems.
We encourage everyone to work together to identify potential health or safety hazards, so if you see something you think needs to be improved, please let us know. No need to wait for an accident/injury to occur; if it does not sit well with you, it likely needs to be addressed. We thank you for whatever feedback you are willing to offer, particularly when it comes to the health and safety of the kids (parents and staff health too).
Children may only be picked up by designated persons with written consent from the parent(s) of the child. The authorized person must provide a photo ID and should not be given the code/keycard to the front door. If necessary, an entrance code/keycard may be deactivated in a matter of seconds.
Fire and tornado safety is incorporated into our curriculum so in the event of an emergency staff and students are prepared. We encourage you to have an emergency plan at home as well, so your child is familiar with safety drills and understands the importance of preparedness.
