Staff Reputation

Research shows that the number one criterion when parents choose a nursery is the reputation of the staff.  Parents ask themselves the question: will my child be safe at this nursery?

The best way to ensure that children are looked after in a way that will reduce the likelihood of accidents is to have proper procedures in place and, just as importantly, a way of ensuring that everybody adheres to them e.g. by having motivated staff and mechanisms for learning from mistakes (however apparently trivial).

Staff Training

CCTV cameras in the playrooms of a nursery can help with staff training.  Managers and owners can look in on playrooms without having to be in several places at once.  This is particularly useful in nurseries with many rooms or where the manager is regularly off-site.  Errors by the child carers can then be corrected much sooner. 

Staff Motivation

Care has to be taken, though, to ensure that staff are comfortable being on camera, that the CCTV becomes a motivational tool, where managers and staff are continually learning and improving, rather than being seen as Big Brother looking for faults.  This can be achieved by sensitivity and good communication, especially when the system is first being installed.

Incident Resolution

There is also one major benefit for staff from CCTV.  That is, when an accident does happen, everybody can go to the recording and see exactly what did happen.  This means that, in the case of genuine accidents, which most usually are, managers and staff have better protection from unfair accusations and litigation.
