Safety and Security
Great Beginnings of Dacula makes the safety and security of our students, faculty and families our top priority. Of course, safety and security starts with our own faculty and staff. Our staff knows all of our students, their families and friends. We are extremely vigilant, keeping a close watch on the entire school campus and getting to know everyone's name. Each building on our campus has a single entrance which requires all visitors to enter and exit through the same access way.
All visitors must be let in through the front door by one of our staff to gain access to the administrative office. Once inside the front office, the administration greets all visitors. If our staff does not know a visitor, we will not allow them to enter the school without authorization.
All parents are required to check in through our Procare School management system. Parents have a unique code to identify them. Our system tracks entry and exit times for all individuals.
Other safety features include:
Fire sprinklers in the buildings
Limited building access through a single, keypad-locked front-door
Visitor ID screening
Monthly inspections that exceed state requirements
Separate playground areas
CPR & First-Aid certified employees
Safety and security are very important at Great Beginnings of Dacula. All our classrooms in the preschool building are equipped with security cameras. All classrooms may be viewed live from the monitor located in the reception area. Parents are encouraged to view their child interacting in the classroom at any time during their visit. In order to protect the privacy of all children, video is not available for viewing.
Also, throughout the school, all members of our staff wear uniform shirts and are easily recognizable. All members have completed background checks, drug tests and finger printing prior to starting their employment and then annually.
If you have any questions about our security systems or procedures, please do not hesitate to contact us.
