Observation Report Project
Upon entering the center there are two sets of double doors, the first set are unlocked, the second set are locked and the parent has to either have an assigned key fab or be let in by one of the staffed member, if it is not one of the regular parents or guardians picking up the child, they must present a picture ID and be on the Childs Emergency Contact Form in the child’s file. Each child and staff member has their own four digit pin to clock in and out of the building to help let the staff know how many children are in the building and where they are located. Also, each room is equipped with a security camera that is easily viewed by parents if they just want to stop in to see how their child’s day is going without disrupting their day. This showed that the center had well thought out safety plans and the environment was secure. Each room was also equipped with a fire alarm, a carbon monoxide detector, as well as the safety routine in case of a fire or natural disaster emergency.
The staff is always cheerful, warm, and friendly during each visit. While walking down the main hallways the first things I noticed was all of the children’s pictures and art work covering the brightly colored walls. This showed that the teachers are proud
