Nothing is more important to us than keeping your children safe while entrusted to our care. We recently updated all of our security and emergency procedures. This includes alarming all doors, setting up security process and procedures to handle any level of attempted security breaches of facilities. Definitive emergency procedures in conjunction with local authorities to handle all types of emergencies. We also understand that in some cases there are sensitive issues around custody. We team with parents to ensure that we support all requirements of custody procedures when we have been notified of the legal requirements. We are constantly updating our security procedures and invest in communicating to our families parents and guardians when updates occur. To ensure this:
- Our location has secured front entrances. To enter the building, you must have an access code, which will be given to you at enrollment and changed monthly to enhance security.
- All the teachers are trained to follow a strict security process, including checking a photo ID to only allow children to be picked up by those authorized by the parent/guardian.
- All employees have been background checked, fingerprinted and cleared through the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (http://www.ocfs.state.ny.us).
- All family data is securely stored with restricted access.
Health, Wellness and Security are significant and top priorities for Inspire! and our families. We are always looking to better these areas of our service, so look for more benefits to come soon!
