In the modern days, our children are more vulnerable to infections and it is our duty, as parents, to safeguard their health without interfering with the way they live, i.e. the games and visiting the neighborhoods. The greatest fear of any parent is receiving the news that their kids have been abducted.
It has been in news whereby the parents and/or schools have lost track of the whereabouts of children especially during trips, or leaving them in school. We have also heard many cases whereby the kids have been taken by unauthorized individual purporting to be the kids’guardian.
The use of self-service kiosk, together with other security measures, such as security cameras, effective lock systems, etc. can greatly reduce the risk of such incidences and deter individuals that may cause harm to our kids and other property.
The use of kiosk check-in systems in the management of the childcare has drastically increased. With the support of other security measures, as fore mentioned, there is a live feed for the parents and other administrators on the whereabouts of the kids. These systems allow the students to be managed by their guardians more effectively. In addition to this great benefit, some of the other benefits are:
1. Like other businesses that use self-service kiosks, there is less paperwork and this brings about the reduction of staff duties which in turn reduces the costs. The guardians and/or school administrators have more time on their hand and they can focus on other valuable jobs which will add value to them and as well as the children on their care.
2. The emergency management is more effective and convenient and this provides the school with accurate headcount when required.
3. Self-service kiosks are also used to provide the parents with relevant additional information about the school and they are able to access it when they are checking their kids in and out of the system.
4. If the kiosk design is made to accommodate a printer, parents and guardians have a privilege to print school material which may be relevant to them from the self-service kiosks such as schedules, forms, grade forms and any other announcements.
In the recent past, there has been an introduction of “Comply Ally” by the Child care compliance in California. This allows the parents and school administrators to access compliance tools and business management software such as guidelines for childcare, labor and family law.
Like other kiosks for businesses, the key to its effective and convenience is the kiosk design and the components that are installed. Globally accepted and reputable kiosk manufactures such as Olea Kiosks are a great start to the success of your kiosk deployment.
