Is there internet viewing of my child at your center?  What Security Means From A Parent’s Perspective:  “The classrooms are so clean and organized and I love the concept of the glass between each room so that transitions are less "scary". What drew me to this daycare was the option of viewing my child online throughout the day by video. This was an awesome feature that helped relieve some of that first time mommy anxiety.”  - Valerie Thornton, Parent (Source: Google Review)

Yes, our internet viewing system can connect parents and family members to their child while at work or thousands of miles away. Through a secured internet site and unique password, you can observe your child�s daily activities through your computer. The same cameras are fed to the front desk for additional monitoring by administrative staff.

Parents should go to the WRAL Weather website, click on "Closings", and search for "Kids R Kids of RTP" under the letter "K". There we will communicate any delayed opening or closing. If we are not listed then we will be open for normal business hours. Note: it is not uncommon for us to delay posting our final decision until the wee hours of the morning.

The Parent's Role
The relationship between parents and Center staff is vital to the success of a child´s experience. A partnership must be formed the first day, with open communication and understanding that the development and growth of the child is our top priority.

Parents can assist and help ensure a smooth transition by doing the following:

Sign children in and out at the front desk and then escort them to their designated class. Have all forms completed promptly. Update forms, as needed, when changes occur (i.e. new phone number,  address, etc.). Keep staff informed of special needs or changes that might affect your child´s  behavior.  Children should be dressed properly for the weather and play.
