Security Systems and Control of Access
Child daycare centre is a vulnerable sector of the community. For this very reason, GAO RFID strongly believes that access to daycare facilities ought to be monitored 24/7. Providing employees with RFID Badges, parents with RFID Keyfobs, and using our RFID Access Control System enables a fully automated way of granting and restricting access to specific zones on daycare property so that only authorized personnel and care providers can enter the premises.
Tracking Child Care Workers, Children and Unknown Personnel
Identifying and locating both children and staff in your organization is a necessary part of maintaining the safety and security. With GAO RFID Personnel Tracking System, we enable administrative staff to track the location of children, daycare workers and volunteers and monitor their movements. A set of specialized tags with integrated alarms are also available to further ensure the safety of staff and children in case of danger or wandering. Once activated, the tag can message the monitoring system with the employee or child’s identity and location to ensure quickest possible reaction time from either security or law enforcement.

Inventory checks are a necessary part of daily optimal function at a child care facility. In order for the child to experience all aspects of the daycare facility, it is of utmost importance that the food materials, equipment, and technological devices are checked for quality and required quantities are always at hand.
The GAO RFID solutions can provide you with methods to automatically track, categorize, and see what’s on hand to fulfill the needs of your care centre.
Integrating GAO RFID Solutions with your Educational System
The function of a RFID or radio frequency identification system is to collect in real time the identification of objects and all associated data.
The challenge arises when it’s time to put that collected information to work: integrating RFID-generated data into educational applications so that essential information can be viewed, analyzed, applied and presented to end users.
Competency assessment software, payroll systems, and decision support management tools are used to help make other daycare processes more efficient. It is essential that an RFID solution is compatible with such systems.
GAO’s AUTO-ID Engine, incorporates middleware and essential RFID functions, plus GAO’s RFID hardware and system integration expertise make it easy to integrate with all educational systems that are currently used. Through our middleware and a proper API, the data collected by our RFID systems are seamlessly passed on to your organization’s system of integrated applications.
The results are demonstrated in a way that will empower you to make your organization a better fit for all the kids at your daycare and the childcare employees.
