Child Care Health and Safety Daily Checklist Mobile App
Effective care and education of children depends on having a facility that is safe and healthy for children.
How does it work?
The Child Care Health and Safety Daily Checklist app can be used by child care providers or child care centers to identify any health and safety hazards before a child care program commences for the day. The checklist app is designed to be completed by a staff member at the beginning of each day to ensure the health and safety of all children that attend the program. The app user will note the classroom and date that the check is completed. Caregivers, child care facilities, child care providers, and others completing the form will check off items that could pose a risk to children such as window cords that are within children's reach or electrical outlets that are not covered. The area should be clean and free of clutter, play equipment in appropriate locations, hygiene supplies are available, and cleaning supplies are labeled and out of children's reach. If the day involves outdoor play, all playground equipment should be cleaned and in good condition. With this app, the staff of a child care program can ensure that children's health is protected daily, and also ensure that facilities meet safety standards and childcare facility licensing regulations.
