Safety is paramount in a child's world

Schools and day nurseries should be safe places to attend. They are second homes for most children if you consider how much time they spend there. But home comforts and safety do not always go together. During school lessons the classroom may be crowded and stressful, and children in nurseries often become very lively.
Security in such places must not be neglected – it must be easy for children, small or large, to get out if an incident occurs. And just the same degree of security should be provided for a small nursery or rural school as for those with the resources of a large city.
