Each family uses a finger print or unique code for entry to the building. By using their fingerprint or code, family members may enter the building any time during operating hours. Our lobby is accessible for waiting; however, entry to the building must be approved by staff or by fingerprint or code entry.
If someone other than an immediate family member is picking up a child, prior notification must be made with a director. The person picking up the child can ring the door bell and will be asked for photo identification if not known by a director.
All exterior doors are locked and entry is only accessible by our staff who have a code to enter the building.
