With this topic, I want to complete a series of materials on the safety of children (I have already written about the rules that must be observed at home and in nature).
Obviously, in moments of absence, each parent wants to be absolutely sure that his child is safe.
By the way, in some private gardens, webcams are installed for this purpose, and parents can watch their children online at any time.
Unfortunately, our state preschool institutions are far from using such technologies.
In our kindergarten, the child is given only to mom and dad. If you know in advance that due to circumstances you will not be able to pick up the baby, a verbal agreement with the teacher is not enough. It is necessary to write an application of the appropriate form addressed to the manager, to which is attached a copy of the passport of the person who will pick up the baby. It does not matter who it is – my own grandmother or neighbor.
Once I did not have time to go to the kindergarten for my daughter, called the teacher, said that my girlfriend would pick her up (her son attends the same group, usually we take the children together). But the teacher categorically refused, they say, it was necessary to think earlier and write a statement.
Also in our group there is a magazine in which each (and mother including) signs and time when she takes the child.
If a child has intolerance or is allergic to some products, it is necessary to warn the caregiver in advance. Usually, reference from the district pediatrician is sufficient.
We have 2 allergies in the group – they are not given dairy products, they separately boil the porridge in the water.
If it is not a physiological reaction, but a banal aversion to the product, it is also advisable to warn about it. My daughter, for example, does not like buryak, tomato juice and fish, which I reported in advance. However, despite this, by some miracle, she gladly absorbs fish cakes in the garden.
Case of life
During meetings or an open house, parents can personally inspect the rooms where children are staying. For example, I checked whether the windows open easily, whether there is a fire alarm, whether the sockets are closed, how hot the water for washing hands is and if the door to the group is closed.
By the way, about the latter. The year before last, the daughter of my friend ran away from the kindergarten. Then she was about 2 years old, and she already spoke excellently. Despite the presence of a caregiver, a nanny and a guard on the territory of the kindergarten, she was what she was in – in her pajamas and slippers she went out into the street.
Without thinking twice, she went to the store where they usually go with her mother, walked there, went out (note that none of the adults had wondered what the 2-year-old child in pajamas and slippers were doing in the store), decided to cross the road … And just at the moment of waiting for green, a woman became interested in her, who took the girl to the police.
I think you should not talk about what the girl’s parents experienced. Personally, I certainly would have enough Kondraty. The good thing is that it ends well. Therefore, I immediately warned the teacher that our house was near the kindergarten and, theoretically, my daughter could decide to run home for a couple of minutes.
Also in our garden often conduct classes, during which, in a playful way, children are told how to behave in dangerous situations, they are introduced to the basics of the rules of the road.
The role of parents is by no means important – it is necessary to properly raise children at home, this is the basis of the child’s adequate behavior in kindergarten. For example, a child should know that hyperactivity and permissiveness can increase the risk of injury.
