To help ensure our nursery is Covid safe and secure we have recently installed a temperature screening camera. The system will now help support us with our daily temperature checks for both staff and children on entering the premises. The camera works by measuring the core skin temperature of each person and flags up anyone who is reading a high or elevated temperature.
We have created a zone where children and staff can stand to have their temperatures taken each morning when they arrive. We have had a great response from all of our parents who find the use of the technology reassuring during this current time.
Staff have found the technology particularly easy to use and effective in recording and monitoring children’s temperatures. The camera will also be used in the future for any prospective parents and visitors to the nursery. We are proud to be amongst the first settings to install this technology in addition to our other measures to help protect our children, families and staff.
