Would you feel more secure if your child attended a daycare where you could virtually check on the child throughout the day?
(CBS 3) BUCKS COUNTY, Pa. Imagine being able to check-in at anytime on your children while they are at daycare. Web cameras are putting many parents at ease.
The service is available for an additional fee at Children of America daycare centers via technology provided by ALWAYS CLOSE BY. At Children of America’s site they stress the security of their centers. Interesting though in the article, one of advantages of being able to view the children on-line is the suggestion parents can share their password with others citing a father deployed overseas by the Navy or family and friends unable to visit.
It should be stressed that if you can see your children via a web connection, so can anyone with the password regardless of their intent. Once the password is given to someone else, you may be inadvertently putting your child at risk. The system can allow parents to observe their child’s daily interactions, and feel more of a part of their lives, but just use good judgement when doing so.
