Health & Safety
Health and Safety are paramount at Snyder as we are caring for your children. You can be more productive at work when you know your child is safe after school, during school breaks and during the summer vacations.
These are just a few highlights of such standards in place at Snyder After School & Summer Program:
- Every adult working or volunteering undergoes a criminal background check.
- Staff members are First Aid, CPR, & AED certified.
- Our facility is equipped with camera and entrance/exit alert systems.
- We also maintain a low adult to child ratio as an extra safety measure which also allows for more individualized attention.
Division of Child Development, North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services require child care centers or family child care homes providing transportation for children to meet all motor vehicle laws, including inspection, insurance, license, and restraint requirements. Children may never be left alone in a vehicle and child-staff ratio must be maintained. Snyder’s fleet of vehicles are kept to those standards plus some of our own. Proactive and protective measures such as weekly inspections and regular tuning and maintenance are performed to ensure utmost safety and compliance with transportation requirements.
All of our drivers must be at least 21 years old or a duly licensed school bus driver and have a valid driver’s license of the type required under North Carolina Motor vehicle Law for the vehicle being driven and no convictions of Driving While Impaired (DWI) or any other impaired driving offense. All drivers undergo training on vehicle emergency protocol and the vehicles are supplied with appropriate emergency equipment such as fire extinguishers, first aid supplies, and emergency reflectors.
