The most secure video system available.
The best security, plain and simple.
Streaming video in childcare has a responsibility for protecting the privacy of people and data. WatchMeGrow was built for the business of childcare, and privacy is the single most important driver of our business. In more than 20 years of operation, we've never had a case of unauthorized video access.
Data Security FAQs
Connected devices in your business can include smart speakers, web-enabled thermostats, wireless office equipment, and streaming camera systems like WatchMeGrow. These devices are part of the “Internet of Things,” a rapidly growing network of physical objects that include an IP address for internet connectivity. These objects are Internet-enabled and communicate with each other and with cloud software that operates them.
The connectivity of these devices carries an inherent risk of unknown third parties gaining access to your business’s data. For example, your school may use software that manages enrollments, student records, and tuition payments. The data, including private records and credit card information, stored in this software is sensitive and can land in the hands of unknown people if connected devices are not secure.
Compromised data is a very serious threat to a company’s reputation. Loss of trust is the biggest risk a childcare provider can face.
There are several important factors to consider when assessing the security of web-enabled camera systems. The software that runs your system should be designed for the business of childcare and all of its unique requirements, it should use individual and encrypted passwords for each user, and it should be audited by an independent IT firm.
Unsecured feeds can easily be viewed by anyone who cares to look for them. In fact, sites like Insecam.org offer a directory of online surveillance security cameras. Users can select a country to watch live street, traffic, parking, office, road, beach and home webcams. Feeds are available that show medical facilities, inside homes, and inside childcare centers – no passwords required.
Selecting streaming video software that has encrypted usernames, passwords, and video is the best protection against this kind of unsecured feed.
Compromised data is a very serious threat to a company’s reputation. Loss of trust is the biggest risk a childcare provider can face. The first thing on every parent’s list of requirements when choosing a preschool is safety and security. If the streaming video system a school uses to provide an extra level of accountability is not constantly monitored for security breaches, your business can unknowingly provide public access to your customers’ personal information.
With regular headlines revealing the latest security breaches, consumers are more aware than ever of the responsibility businesses have to protect their personal information. Protection from identity theft is big business – with companies like LifeLock, Experian and McAfee earning millions to provide security to individuals. Customers expect your business will safeguard the sensitive data they share with you.
Testimonials from Schools
This is a wonderful way for parents to see their child throughout the day!
WatchMeGrow is such an awesome program. It was super easy to set up. Support from the company has been quick and very helpful. The software interface is intuitive. Our parents love it. Not only do they have a peace of mind, but also they feel connected with their kids while they are away working. Having WatchMeGrow installed in our academy also sends parents a strong message that we are offering an honest and transparent service. We believe WatchMeGrow is one of the big deciding factors for many of our parents.
Parents and staff are very pleased to be able to see the children. Also helps with reviewing employees.
The WatchMeGrow Marketing Kit arrived on Friday – incredibly impressive. I’m looking forward to sharing our partnership with families in my next newsletter!
You are one of the best vendors I have ever worked with, not just childcare, but my whole career.
We love our WatchMeGrow camera system. The quality is excellent and the convenience of having an app on the phone is so helpful!
I was apprehensive about switching to a company on the other side of the country because the local company I was using couldn’t keep up with my business. Once Rob did the demo and I saw how clear the cameras were and they explained how easy it would be to go back and view the history, I was sold! From install to monthly service for the last three years, I have NEVER regretted that decision…they are organized, professional, and dedicated to serving my business!
WatchMeGrow is such an amazing company! Anytime that we've had trouble with internet connection, a camera going down, not keeping up with a request to update a camera for a family, etc - they are ALWAYS on top of things! Today I was on the phone with Tech Support for over 2 hours (Dee is amazing by the way! ;)) and they were so kind and helpful to me! They were able to remotely resolve my problem for me. I recommend WatchMeGrow 100% - we are so lucky to have found them.
In the morning when I wake up there are three things that I do: I check my texts, I check my emails, and I check WatchMeGrow. I want to get a temperature of what’s going on at the center so that I can see what I’m walking into before I actually get to the school. If there’s an issue then I’m able to come prepared.
WatchMeGrow is an amazing product that we have in our facility. It really enables parents to see what their child’s day is like and experience it while they are busy at work. It’s probably one of the best features we have in our schools. It has definitely generated a lot of enrollment. After the curriculum, it's the second most important thing that sells our schools.
The investment in WatchMeGrow has done wonderful things for our business: it’s given us peace of mind, higher enrollments, and it absolutely helps us retain our customers longer. We don't cut any corners. To provide a quality center you need to invest in things like upgrading the facility, the curriculum, technology, and WatchMeGrow because parents really come to us because of these tools.
WatchMeGrow helps me coach new teachers, it’s a great opportunity to show best practices and best examples at work. If you are in the classroom with a teacher doing observations, it tends to make them very nervous and I never want them to feel that way. I want them to see their true teaching style without hovering over them.
The WatchMeGrow team is fantastic, especially the support team. The whole installation process was very professional; from inception all the way to getting it to work. It has been a really smooth experience and the video has never frozen on my phone. On Netflix or Amazon Prime, I’ve had things buffer, but never on WatchMeGrow. It has just worked flawlessly for every one of my parents and for me.
One of the philosophies at our academy is to have built open and honest relations with parents. And one way we implement that is by having cameras in our centers. For anybody who is looking at starting a childcare center and wants to develop an open community and relationship with parents, I highly recommend that they implement WatchMeGrow.
We have loved working with WatchMeGrow over the last almost 20 years and promoting you to many other owners. You and your team have just done an exceptional job for us on all our schools over the years.
Most companies work on having satisfied customers but everyone at WatchMeGrow goes above and beyond providing regular services to create raving fans. It was a great decision to start business partnership with WatchMeGrow. Thank you for all you do to help us provide a great service to our customers!
I just wanted to say thank you for the awesome site and service at WatchMeGrow! I was hesitant at first since we weren’t located in the same state, but they quickly surpassed my expectations with their outstanding technical and customer care services. I was so impressed seeing the cameras go live- it was like watching color TV for the very first time! I couldn't be more happy with my decision to switch to WatchMeGrow!
What I love love most about WatchMeGrow is the convenience of being able to view all the cameras from my desk on the admin display. It helps me do my job as a director. I can be in 12 places at one time!
Excellent customer service! Very knowledgeable, helpful and polite staff. We have used Watch Me Grow for many years and have always been very impressed with the company and their product.
This is by far the best system on the market! I have over 250 people who use this system daily, and everyone is always so pleased!!!
Watch Me Grow is amazing!! It provides the greatest piece of mind for parents to leave their children when they are working. It is so difficult to do but with the cameras, parents can be there without physically being there. They can be a part of all the memories too!
We LOVE it! We’ve been with WatchMeGrow for a long time and we couldn’t be happier. We deliver the best childcare possible and WatchMeGrow truly helps us show it off. Our families and staff appreciate the investment we’ve made in WatchMeGrow.
So, far very pleased with all the aspects of your service. Easy to use, flexible and convent, very customizable to our needs
When we ask our parents why they decided to enroll with us, WatchMeGrow streaming video is consistently their number one answer. Without question WatchMeGrow has been and is one of the most successful marketing and retention programs we have. We couldn’t be happier with WatchMeGrow and neither could our parents.
WatchMeGrow streaming video is a good tool, our parents are at ease immediately. They are able to see the great care and education we provide first-hand. Our teachers love it too, they feel more secure and able to do their jobs better with WatchMeGrow.
We have a strong foundation as a business; the webcam puts me in a position where I can offer customers something even more than that. We’ve heard from grandparents in India who write to us to say how much they appreciate being able to watch their grandchildren from far away. In so many ways, WatchMeGrow allows us to give the students, teachers and families a better experience.
As a new academy, I find that the WatchMeGrow program is a big selling point for our inquiring families. Touring families are always impressed and wowed by the WatchMeGrow technology, having the camera views on display in our lobby is impressive! All of our enrolled infant families are using WatchMeGrow, which is one of our unique features and another reason they select our Kiddie Academy over our competitors!
WatchMeGrow is the best investment we made in our academy. Many of the parents sign up because of WatchMeGrow. They like the idea that the director, owner, parents, grandparents, and relatives are able to watch their children in the classroom.
We are very pleased with WatchMeGrow. As a business owner, I particularly love their excellent customer service and quick turn-around. It is totally an advantage having the web camera when seeking to enroll prospective families. It is usually one of the top three priorities for families when they enroll – especially for first-time moms in the infant room. WatchMeGrow is a tremendous competitive advantage in our local market.
WatchMeGrow is fantastic. The video quality is much better than competitors, the system is much better and more stable. The site is easier to use and more polished. I could go on and on. Overall, they simply deliver a better experience.
As a mom, I was sold immediately on the idea when I watched the streaming video. Providing online streaming video is now an expectation from parents of children in childcare.
With our previous online viewing systems, access was limited to actual computers (e.g. desktop, laptop). With WatchMeGrow, our parents love that they can view our classrooms from any device including iPads and smartphones. In addition, the video quality they experience over our high-speed Internet connection is dramatically better than our previous service.
