Technology gives mummy and daddy the chance to be a fly on the wall
How many of us can put our hands up and honestly say that children haven't changed our lives and our careers forever? I certainly canít. But moving from an IT sales background into the nursery industry was the best decision I have ever made. I started my new career, as most people do, by looking around for ideas. What immediately struck me was the fact that nurseries seemed reluctant to use the technology which is now so readily available. After a great amount of research and listening to the working parent, I soon came to realise what I certainly wanted for my child. So with all this in mind I began searching for a very safe, password protected, easy to use and easy to control Webcam company. Let's face it, times have changed and technology is a wonderful thing. Webcam is now available for parents to reap the benefits.
This tool of 'seeing for yourself' may appeal for many more reasons. Some parents feel that working deprives them of being totally aware of their child's behaviour. A Webcam enables parents to see how their child is interacting with other children. It also allows you to assess how your child's behaviour at nursery is affected by any changes at home, or the affect of you working those extra hours which has thrown their most important routine out of sequence. Increasingly these days, careers require trips away which are above and beyond the nine to five. Being unable to see your little ones for a couple of days can be extremely upsetting. The nursery-cam system combats this by allowing you to log on four times a day for ten minutes at a time. In addition, you can see exactly what your child is doing right this second.
On a lighter note, to achieve the best for
your child in our modern society there is often a conflict between two
schools of thought:
Nowadays, the majority of nurseries incorporate so much with your child that it is an exciting environment for them to be in. Singing, dancing, yoga, ceramic painting, clay making, garden adventures, going for walks, fancy dress, model making, painting, cooking, healthy food. The list is endless. The main thing is that you, as a parent, have peace of mind to continue your work whilst feeling that you are as close to your child as possible. For you to have the opportunity to 'see' your children will make the separation much easier.
I personally think Webcam is priceless. Who wouldn't want to be a fly on the wall and peep on their child?
