Safety at Home

Always keep your eyes on the children under your care.

Unless there is a personal emergency, do not use your phone for any purpose other than for the educational childcare.

Unintentional drowning is the leading cause of death in children aged 1-4(National Center for Health Statistics). Never leave a child unattended in the bathtub or near pools of water. 

Be mindful around exposed outlets and electrical plugs/cords.

Furniture at risk of tipping over, including TVs, should be anchored to the wall.

Drawers and cabinets should be mindfully filled so that dangerous items are out of reach of little hands.

Safety on the go

Always keep your eyes on the children under your care. Never leave them unattended.

Unless there is a personal emergency, do not use your phone for any purpose other than for the educational childcare.

If you are not sure if the child can do things like steps, playground structures, etc. on their own, spot them and be ready to catch them if they fall.

While walking on the side walk, make sure you walk closer to the roadside so the children are further away from the cars.

Never jaywalk and alway watch out when crossing the streets.

When taking the subway, be careful of the gaps between the train and the platform.

Stay away from people who might seem unstable. (shouting, moving around in a strange way, etc.)

Accidents happen, make sure to communicate any incidents to the family immediately if it is an emergency, or at the end of your care if it is a minor incident such as a small bump or bruise, parents want to know where the bumps and bruises came from.
