How do I know my child is safe?
IE utilizes one of the most advanced security management software programs in the market today. This starts with security systems at the front door, where parents use a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to gain entry into the building. We also have cameras in all the classrooms. Parents do not have have daily access because of the privacy of individuals with specific needs. If for some reason something happen, we will provide access to footages. We record each child’s in or out of the school and identifies the approved individual picking up or dropping off.
Children are only released to those individuals listed on records in the enrollment package and confirmed by an identification check.
