  • At Knowledge Beginnings, the safety and security of our students is one of our top priorities. Our front door has a coded entry where only authorized family members have the code. Other visitors must ring the door bell and be greeted by a member of our management team. Authorized family members must enter a second code for the doors which lead to the classrooms. This additional set of doors adds another layer of safety for our students. Each classroom has a video camera in place and parents are able to view the classrooms from monitors in the lobby area. We know that your children are your personal treasures and we protect them as such.
