Parents are on alert after a 16-month old child was kidnapped from a Mountain Home, Arkansas Daycare Monday and found 12 hours later. Nathan McVay visited a Springfield daycare to see what security measures are typically in place
For the dozens of children enjoying themselves in the playground, the recent daycare kidnapping means nothing, but to their Parents, it means everything.
For Lori Willadsen, director of the Daycare at Macedonia Baptist Church, the possibility of a day-care abduction is something she's constantly aware of.
Each parent has a 4 digit pin code they must enter before they can even enter the building. That's only the first step in the process to retrieve their child.
She says if someone arrives to pi ck up a child that is not their own, their name must be on a pre-approved list, signed by the parent, in order to the child to leave.
Willadsen has 25 employees who go thorough background checks, yearly inspections, and reevaluations every 2 years.
Experts advise parents to choose daycares carefully and always check their references.
