Live Webcam System
Parents who work full-time may wonder what they’re missing when they send their kids to daycare — classic milestones like first steps, or later ones like the first time a toddler puts on her own snowsuit. Those wondering days are over.
Jiboia Daycare is the first daycare facility in Saskatchewan to provide a live camera service where parents can watch their kids in real time. This technology is not about monitoring — it’s about parents feeling more connected.
Daycare webcams are still relatively scarce on the Canadian child-care scene, but more than 400 American daycares already have them in place.
At Jiboia Daycare, cameras capture all the action from their positions high in the corners of the program room, eating area and backyard. We stream the images (we do not record them) instantaneously to a video server connected to the daycare’s website, where parents log in with a secure password any time to see live video of their children.
Through this service parents will be able to see their children from time to time during a busy day at work. Instead of taking a break and going downstairs for a snack, parents can log in at their desktops and get connected to what their children are doing.
The cameras and the website are meant to enhance communication between parents and caregivers, and between parents and their kids. They aren’t replacing traditional ways of communicating — they’re adding to them.
