  • The health and safety of each child is our #1 priority at the center. Your mind will be put at ease as we discuss our health and safety procedures during the orientation process. Some of the key procedures we provide are: Key Pad entry where only parents or guardians have access to the center, fenced outdoor play area for the children, center identification system, every staff member First Aid & CPR certified, a health and safety coordinator on site, and an Illinois Health Nurse that visits and observes monthly. Our Health nurse is licensed and helps train our staff in continuous changes and procedures happening within the world of health and safety. Every staff member is finger printed along with a state and national background check clearance, before having individual contact with children. Carol Stream KinderCare is also overseen by many state and local agencies such as Carol Stream Fire, Police and Health Department, Illinois State Health Department, and DCFS of Illinois.
