Why does your nursery need security?

Safety and security consistently rank in the Top 5 most important considerations for parents when choosing a day nursery, kindergarten or crèche for their child. Mumsnet lists it in the Top 3. Day nurseries can have superb staff, play facilities and excellent safeguarding, but if you don’t get the fundamentals of nursery security right, you risk an unsatisfactory Ofsted report, or worse, an incident in which a child is hurt, or parent/ stranger abducted resulting reputational damage

Biometric Access Control

  • Biometrics are better than Keys

    Almas’ Biometric access control systems give day nurseries a flexible and affordable management tool to control exactly who can gain entry to the premises, and when. No need for pin codes, fobs, swipe cards or keys – all of which can be lost, stolen, lent, forgotten or subject to abuse.

    Almas’ stylish GDPR compliant, fingerprint readers, face scanners and Optima access control software give you complete peace of mind that only authorised people can access your childcare setting.

  • Simple and Easy to use

    Drop off/ collection times are busy. It’s difficult to keep track of who is coming in and out, let alone catch up with late payers, or tackle parents who are constantly exceeding agreed hours.

    With Almas’ Optima ID access control, you can enrol new users quickly, suspend late payers in seconds and set validity dates for trainee staff or parents.

    Our systems range from simple, single entry fingerprint readers to complex multipoint entry systems with a mixture of facial and/ or fingerprint readers.

Safety Monitoring and CCTV

  • Why invest in safety monitoring for your nursery?

    No member of staff can watch every child all the time. In a second a child can fall and hurt themselves or may get too boisterous leading to an accident. CCTV recordings give your management team the opportunity to review footage, identify what happened and then implement training or measures to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

    It could be IP or analogue, dome or fisheye, internal or external, there are many different security cameras available. Our Security Consultants will help you decide whether safety monitoring is suitable and will conduct a free, no obligation, site survey to confirm the best locations and types of camera for your needs.

  • CCTV protects your business and your team

    Safety monitoring provides evidence in the event of an unfounded claim of wrongdoing and can also identify if there is an issue with an employee. Good quality recordings stand up to disciplinary action for HR or criminal investigation by the authorities.

  • Which cameras are right for your nursery?

    It could be IP or analogue, dome or fisheye, internal or external, there are many different security cameras available. Our Security Consultants will help you decide whether safety monitoring is suitable and will conduct a free, no obligation, site survey to confirm the best locations and types of camera for your needs.

  • New Thermal Temperature Recognition Range

    Adapting to the requirements in the post-Covid world, Almas have introduced a new range of thermal temperature cameras; these range from individual handhelds to mass temperature detection cameras.

    There is no government requirement to check temperatures, but when a feverish individual (for any reason) could mean that staff have to self-isolate, or even lead to the business having to temporarily close, businesses right across the country are adding temperature monitoring to their range of covid risk prevention measures.

Time and Attendance

  • Stop time theft

    How much time do you spend collating and working out staff hours at the end of each month? How do you check whether their hours are accurate? Familiarity between teams and junior management can lead to tardiness going unreported.
    The childcare sector often has part time, work experience or trainee staff; it’s vital to have a robust system for monitoring their attendance.

  • Save management time

    Keeping track of staff holidays, hours worked, and absences is a time-consuming task.
    The Almas Biometric time and attendance system is a reliable, simple and effective tool allowing you to get rid of cumbersome traditional paper rotas and sign in sheets which are prone to falsification, error and inaccuracy.
