Safety Health and Security

Quality Time cares for your child like you would.

Education and development are important, but we know that nothing matters more than the safety, security and health of your child. That’s why protection and preparedness are critical considerations in everything we do at Quality Time Childcare center.

From first aid training for emergency situations to sanitation and ensuring a clean and healthy environment for children, we have more than 15 years of experience ensuring that every child is happy and healthy. Although scraped knees are a part of growing up, you can have confidence that your child is cared for in a secure, nurturing environment every day.

How we ensure health and safety at Quality Time Childcare

  • We assess every child’s health by talking with parents and monitoring for symptoms during the course of each child’s day with us; we increase assessment during flu season.
