The ribbon cutting at Miss Robin's Day School was typical in many ways; applause, cake, and tours. But high above the cribs. . . cameras!
"I think it will give parents peace of mind, knowing that they can log onto the internet and see what's happening in the classroom," said Co-Founder Susan Maxwell. It's the first day care center in the Hub City offering camera surveillance to parents via the internet. "So they can watch their children while they're at work," said Michael Strong. He set up the five camera system. "The cameras are password protected so that only parents can access the rooms that their children are in," he said.
"We have Internet cameras in every classroom," said Maxwell. She says the cameras benefit both parents and staff, providing reassurance, accountability, and vigilance. "We think children will love it here," she said.
Rates at Miss Robin's run from $135 to $155 a week. The day care center will officially open on August 25th.
