Safety & Security

At Windsor Academy, we understand the importance of decision making when it comes to your child. Here at Windsor Academy, we provide a loving and safe environment to ensure that you feel at ease and confident when choosing us as your daycare provider. Our facility features all of the following safety features to ensure safety and security.

Controlled Access to the Facility

  • All doors are equipped with single action locks that keep outsiders from entering the building, but allow for easy exit in case of an emergency.
  • No doors are ever left unlocked.
  • Only staff members are permitted to open the doors to parents and authorized adults for drop-off and pick-up.
  • Buzzers are installed on every door which sounds when any door is opened.
  • A coded-keypad is located on the office door and infant room door to ensure secured access to staff members only.

Video Surveillance

  • The daycare facility is equipped with time-lapsing cameras that run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The surveillance system is also remotely monitored by the owner and administrators regularly.

Pick-up Procedures

  • If an adult other than the child's parent comes to pick-up a child, proper identification is required. Prior authorization with a parent must be approved, and proof of their identification will be copied and kept on file for future reference.
  • We keep an up-to-date record of people who are authorized to pick-up students from our facility. If the person picking the child up is not on the list, the parent or guardian will be called and proof of identification must be shown after authorization.


  • Individuals who have not been Department of Children and Families (DCF) and/or FBI fingerprinted will not be permitted on the premises.

Security of Personal Information

  • Information about a child or their family is never to be discussed with anyone other than the child's family. We believe in safeguarding the personal information of our students and their families.

Health and Physical Examination Records

  • All students are required to have up-to-date health records and a current physical examination record.
  • Students who exhibit a fever of 101 degrees or higher, or have diarrhea will be sent home and not permitted back for 24 hours or until a doctor has cleared the child for return.
  • Each room is equipped with a first aid box containing all of the essential items for minor accidents.


  • Our facility and its contents are disinfected daily.
  • Each room is cleaned from top-to-bottom to minimize germs and sickness.
