Project ChildSafe® is a program of the National Shooting Sports Foundation. The Own It? Respect It. Secure It.® initiative is a safety message campaign of Project ChildSafe®.
In addition to keeping your child safe, my goal is also to help keep your child as healthy as possible. Visit the to discover how this is accomplished, and what you can do to help keep everyone healthy.
Wisconsin is no stranger to severe weather such as heavy snowfall, ice, freezing rain, sleet, mixed precipitation, etc. I realize that many parents must report to work no matter what the weather is, so the center will remain open during severe weather whenever possible. However, my primary consideration is for the safety of everyone, so certain weather-related situations may result in the center opening late, closing early , or needing to close all day.
As part of its “S.A.F.E. Summer” campaign to focus attention on the importance of safe and responsible firearm handling and storage, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) today announced its “Top Ten” list of safety tips firearm owners should remember to help ensure they are taking responsible precautions with firearms in their home.
The safety of you and your child is very important to me, so throughout the winter please use extra caution on the driveway and steps. Be sure to hold your child’s hand, and use the guard rail on the steps. Please do not carry children who are able to walk up and down the steps as it may cause a fall and injure both of you.
An accident or injury can occur in any part of your home. Some safety hazards are obvious — such as a toy truck left lying at the top of the stairs. Others are not so easily identified — such as a stairway railing that has become loose.
To get started, click on a checklist below. Use these checklists to make a safety check of your home. You should answer "yes" to all of the questions.
Being prepared for emergencies helps the children to feel less frightened if one were to occur. Amy & Kids Co. conducts fire drills monthly and tornado drills routinely during tornado season. Each drill is recorded in a safety log.
I make every effort to maintain an environment that is childproofed and safe for your child according to Wisconsin licensing regulations. This may include the use of outlet covers, cupboard latches, doorknob covers, baby gates, safe storage of hazardous materials, and the like. In addition, no person whose behavior gives reasonable concern for the safety of the children will be allowed on the premises.
To promote a safe environment and quality care, the use of alcohol is not allowed anywhere on the premises of Amy & Kids Co. while children are present. The presence and/or use of illegal substances will never be permitted; the authorities will be called if the presence and/or use of illegal substances is suspected.
In case of an emergency that requires evacuation, I will assist the children to exit through the child care entrance/exit. If that door is blocked we will exit through the front door, and failing that, through the side door. In any case we will gather on the sidewalk square next to the tree in the front yard. To ensure that all children are accounted for the attendance form will be brought along. After taking attendance, the children will be moved to a safe location as necessary. The first aid kit, my cell phone, and the list of parent phone numbers and emergency contact information will also be taken with us. All families will be notified as necessary.
If the center loses the use of heat, water or electricity at any time during the day I will evaluate the situation to see whether care can be provided without undue loss of quality. If safe, quality care cannot be provided under the circumstances, I will notify each family to pick up their child/ren as soon as possible, and the center will remain closed until safe, quality care can be provided. Because I am not in control of such situations payment in full is due for days that the center is closed due to loss of services.
In order to keep each of the children safe, no child is ever left alone and children are accounted for at all times. If a child would become lost, I will quickly check all areas of the center and property. If the child cannot be found, the police will be called immediately, and then the child's parents or emergency contact person will be notified.
In order to keep your child safe, I will only release a child to his/her parents and to persons listed on the enrollment form. If anyone other than the child's parent or a person listed on the enrollment form is to pick up a child, I need to be notified in advance in writing, email or phone call. The person must be at least 18 years old and will be required to show a picture ID before he/she is allowed to pick up the child. If a person picking up a child is under 18 years old a Consent to Hold Harmless agreement must be signed and on file before I will release the child.
