TotLot Safety


Your child’s safety is our number one priority, and here’s how we ensure it:


  • police records checks are mandatory for all potential providers and any other adults living in the home
  • our Child Care Advisors are Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECE), who perform regular unannounced visits to each provider’s home, at least once per month
  • when your child first begins care, our Child Care Advisors visit the provider’s home at least twice within the first few weeks
  • each provider’s home is thoroughly safety-proofed before children are placed in the home, and then subsequent  safety checks are performed every three months
  • age-appropriate toys and equipment (i.e. strollers, gates) are supplied to the providers
  • our providers practice regular fire safety drills and post a fire evacuation route plan
  • each provider’s home must have a well-stocked first aid kit and a carbon monoxide detector
  • our providers are required to have a valid first aid and CPR certificate, and maintain certification
  • our providers present us with medical proof of good physical and psychological well-being
  • all persons and pets residing within the caregiver’s home must be immunized



Enjoy peace of mind with TotLot Licensed Childcare!
