Simple Ways to Make Your Daycare Safer

Simple Ways to Make Your Daycare Safer

When you’re the owner of a child daycare, parents are entrusting their precious bundles of joy to you each day. It’s your duty to ensure that these children remain healthy, happy, and safe in your care. These are just a few simple ways to make your daycare safer.

Keep Things Clean and Tidy

Children, especially younger children, are notorious for touching things which can spread germs among their peers. As such, it’s important that you keep each play area as clean and sanitized as possible to reduce the risk of a cold outbreak. Be sure to also put toys and materials away to cut back on the chances of someone tripping and hurting themselves.

Set Up and Maintain Security Features

Parents will want to make sure you can protect their child. Two of the things they’ll typically look for is whether your daycare has security features installed and how often you maintain them. Ensuring that your security cameras and door locks are all in working order will provide an extra line of defense in case there’s any danger.

Block Child Access to Dangerous Materials and Appliances

Unfortunately, it’s all too probable that a child could encounter something that could harm them. Daycare professionals need to be extra thorough—lock away all harmful materials and cover any appliances that could do harm. This is especially the case if your play area has a baseboard heater. Fortunately, there are a variety of baseboard heater covers that can block the heated surface from wandering little hands.


It’s important to us at EZ Snap™ Covers that the children in your care remain safe and unharmed while in the presence of a baseboard heater. This is why we set out to supply residential homes and daycares alike with replacement baseboard heater covers. These covers can not only prevent a child’s fingers from being burned, but they can also better distribute heat and make for a more consistent environment.
