Safety measures for kids at KidZania

Safety : A prime motive!

Safety at KidZania

 

Recent instances about security of kids has really placed a question mark on many Play zones, Schools. We, as parents need to be fully aware of the security measures a place has, wherein we leave our kids, be it for fun or for schooling. The world is indeed not a safe place anymore and “Security” is a must for us to audit.

Amongst all the news spreading across pertaining to kids security at schools and play zones, we went to KidZania last Sunday and really had to appreciate the measures they have taken for kids safety.

KidZania, a fun-learning kids zone, has more than 18 years of experience in running safe and secure edutainment Theme parks for children & families all around the world. With 24 facilities in 19 countries spread across Americas, Europe, Japan, Korea, Middle East and Asia, KidZania is the leading Global Edutainment Brand.

And I was glad to see the security measures, which made a mom really happy!

Safety and Security

I found the activities to be safe, educational and rewarding. KidZania is an indoor, temperature controlled place with high quality air monitoring and filtration systems. They have developed a state-of-the-art, comprehensive and integrated security system at KidZania that encompasses:

KidZania Safety measures

a) Controlled Access

All entry & exit points are access controlled and manned by KidZania security personnel. A team of professional and highly trained guards are available in various parts of the city, including: entrance, emergency exit and strategic places. There is also a safety and security officer onsite at all times to ensure safety inside.

b) RFID Security bracelets

KidZania Safety measures

Visitors receive a bracelet to wear around their wrist with a radio frequency antenna and an identification chip installed. The bracelet can only be removed by their employees with parental or guardian authorization through a specialized system at the end of their visit. The RFID bracelet also helps parents and teachers to track and locate each kid inside KidZania and drop messages for them, as well. These bracelets are assigned in groups as they come in, so a child cannot exit if an adult or the whole party is not present. This safety aspect ensures schools and parents, that their children are safe at all times.

c) Highly trained team

KidZania Supervisors are responsible for ensuring the safety of children.  All Supervisors undergo an intensive and extensive training program [as I checked with them], including early childhood training that helps them know how to handle a child in different situations. 

d) CCTV cameras

The complete zone is monitored by several hundred’s of CCTV cameras, which are placed in strategic locations across the centre. They also have a video recording system for future reference. Further, the zone is built in a way that parents and teachers get to observe the children participating in the various activities within the establishment via glass walling.

e) First-Aid Center

KidZania Safety measures

They have a dedicated, fully qualified first aid center inside the city. In addition, even their frontline employees are trained in the provision of first-aid and carry basic medical kits with them at all times.

Additional Safety and Security considerations:

  • Every KidZania is designed to conform or exceed local and international Safety & Security regulations.
  • They have stringent manuals regarding Safety and Security to ensure that visitors, staff are safe and secure at all times and that all precautions have been considered related to emergency situations.
  • From the design stage, CCTV system is centralized and controlled from a secured control room, in which all signals from CCTV cameras, Public address system, fire alarms and access/exits are controlled.
  • Restrooms: Internal elements of the restrooms help to be aware of safety aspects. One of these is the height of the toilets partition, which must allow to see if no more than one person is inside. Though CCTV coverage cannot be considered within toilets, every toilet is fixed with one at the entry & exit to determine who has used it and at what time, incase of any such requisite.

I checked out personally all these systems and hence thought to share my views here. Safety of kids is prime and their should be not a single loophole left in the schools and play zones.

Reach out to Kidzania and let kids play and learn with their interesting activities. I shall be covering an entire post on their activities for kids soon.

Till then, Be Safe! 

[This is a sponsored post, but I was happy to vouch these measures in person with my kid and found it imperative to give it a mention. For me, Safety of my child is far above than other activity.]

  24. Me and my behalf also worries about schools admissions after seen news on one of schools security and management.
    But after seen this article that a play zone is that much concern about kids security and providing bracelet for kids to track them, which is appreciable.
    KidZania providing world class facilities and security in every department which is great. But they have to ensure to maintain the same in future also.
    Schools and play zones are first step for a kid to understand how to grow in this complicated planet 🙏 so we dont want any single flaw in this.

  25. This place sounds amazing! So safe, and family-friendly. I wonder if there’s one in South Florida.

  30. The safety of children is indeed of prime importance. I really like the idea of the RFID security bracelets. I should check to see if they sell them where I live.

  31. That’s crazy the amount of security and safety people they have there. I don’t even think Disneyland had that much the last time I was there. It does but still places that are this small usually do not. That’s so good that they keep the child’s safety in mind so much.

  32. This place looks really wonderful! I will share this article with my friends who have kids!

  45. Safety is the Number One issue in parenting! I know i’m not a mom yet to feel this, but I imagine having your kids on other people hand it’s kinda risky… Though I see Kidzania stuff took the whole “security” thing to another level and this is such a great thing for every parent that trust their kids to these people. That’s so great for Kidzania!

  46. I am not into marriage type and all. But few of my friends are married and by reading it, i can pretty much feel that this is good place. If anyone asks I will surely share your blog.

    1. Thanks Aditya!

  47. Oh your post reminds me of the recent incident in Kidzania Manila, were something falls from the ceiling and hit a boy’s head. The response time of the in-house paramedic are so slow and terrible aa the news said.
    All they just said is that, it is first time something happened inside the facility. And seems they are not trained to assist. Very poor.

    1. That was sad, I never saw any such incident though here.

  48. Hey,
