Recently opened in Glastonbury, CT, Klub Kid is the first center in the area to provide secure live daycare cameras to parents. Prospective parents can tour the facility at http://www.klubkidinc.com.
Glastonbury, CT March 11, 2005 -- Recently opened in Glastonbury, Connecticut, Klub Kid Childcare and Enrichment center is equipped with the latest in secure, digital streaming technology that allows parents to view live video of their children through a secure area of their website at .
Karen Yorski, Klub Kid's Co-Owner and Director, said they selected KidsVision's technology early on in the planning phases of the daycare center. "We looked into several options including standard webcams and other systems. But, other alternatives just didn't provide the same level of quality and security that we were trying to achieve. Our goals included a state of the art facility with a home like environment¡..where parents feel welcome to visit the center at any time. The KidsVision camera service is really an extension of this idea."
Although Klub Kid is the first center in the area to provide the live video service to parents, Karen believes that it will soon become the standard for most child care providers. "Parents expect more than just the standard daycare's babysitting service; they want higher quality education in an environment where the safety and security of their children can be entrusted. The KidsVision service allows parents to see their kids interacting, playing, and learning. Our parents really love it!"
Once enrolled at Klub Kid, parents select a unique username/password to login to the secure area of the website where they can watch their children online. There are no additional fees to use the service, and parents receive technical assistance by calling 1.888.Kids.Vsn (888.543.7876) or chatting online with a KidsVision support representative at .
Keven DeYoung, a parent who considers Klub Kid her children's second family adds, "My comment about the cameras is one word: AWESOME. As a parent, it is difficult to stop by and grab lunch on a given day to be with a child. The cameras allow me to see a bird's eye view of what does go on within the four walls of daycare. I love seeing when Patrick and James are playing together along with the many other friends we've met over the years, building blocks, towers and whatever else. Cameras are an added feature to ease parents minds having to leave them at a school. Bottom line, the cameras are terrific!"
Joe Payne, KidsVision spokesperson, emphasized, "It's important to understand the difference between the KidsVision streaming service and other so called web cameras. Most important is that the video is 128 bit digitally encrypted. The encryption is necessary in order to ensure only authorized user access to the system. Second, standard webcams cannot provide the same level of quality that KidsVision clients and parents have come to expect."
Walking through the new center, it's easy to recognize the amount of planning and thought that went into its design. Brightly-colored walls and pictures are colorfully decorated to stimulate children's minds. The rooms consists of science, computer, and play areas for each age group.
