The viewing system, which is located at the daycare and managed from a secured access
centre, provides a unique
opportunity for parents to view live, real time video feed not "snap shots" or stills of their child, at the click of a mouse via the Internet. Parents and authorized family members such as grandparents, aunts and uncles are given a personal user ID code to access the facilityís cameras resulting in ability to view their child/grandchild live from virtually any computer or television with an Internet connection. Now, parents and family members can enjoy watching the growth and development of their child in the childcare environment as it happens.

∑ When parents get home from work, they can talk with their child about what they did at day care as if it was done as a family.
∑ Other members of the family can see the child and see a connection from wherever they live.
∑ If the day care centre goes so far as to have Web cams in its facility, parents can have confidence in it.
