9.2.4 Emergency/Security Policies and Plans Sign-In/Sign-Out System

The facility should have a sign-in/sign-out system to track who enters and exits the facility. The system should include name, contact number, relationship to facility (e.g., parent/guardian, vendor, guest, etc.) and recorded time in and out.
This system helps to maintain a secure environment for children and staff. It also provides a means to contact visitors if needed (such as a disease outbreak) or to ensure all individuals in the building are evacuated in case of an emergency.
