OUR CHILD SAFETY PROGRAM M.A.T.S.S. Management and staff are always concerned about the safety and well-being of the children we care for.
Our staff are routinely trained in various N.Y.S. mandated Health & Safety procedures such as CPR/First Aid/Medical Assistance Training (MAT), Mandated Reporter, Fire & Shelter-In- Place Drills etc. and we provide Parent Resources and information on other programs such as Child ID Day, N.C W.H.A.L.E Program and N.Y.S. Laws concerning Child Car Seat Safety.
In 2018, M.A.T.S.S. embarked on a new affiliation and accreditation process with the Angel Watch Foundation www.angelwatch.org , which provides broader and more stringent educational experiences for our staff on health & safety related topics and how-to-handle protocols for external, internal and disaster threats. Our Syosset Center was accredited by review and has begun additional training protocols.
As part of its accreditation, AngelWatch will now provide the conduit to notify all emergency services for the Syosset Center, to allow them to assess situations before getting to the emergency. Our Bellmore Center will begin the process in near future. This added support makes our Centers the only accredited childcare facility on Long Island and part of a network of some of the safest childcare centers across the United States.
