SAFETY AND SECURITY
OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY
When it comes to the safety of your child, there’s no such thing as being too careful. That’s why Kid’s Harbor employs proprietary technology that allows our staff instant access to your child’s medical information, arrival and departure times, and the names of people authorized for drop off and pick up.
To ensure your child’s safety, it is our strict policy that only authorized personnel are admitted into our building. Beyond keeping children safe, we believe children learn better when they feel they are in a secure and comfortable environment.
